This practical guidebook, with a beautifully-illustrated storybook, enables teachers, parents and professionals to help children aged 4-12 connect with unresolved feelings affecting their behaviour.

This is a guidebook to help children who:

  • are suffering from the pain of loss or separation from someone or something they love deeply
  • have had a parent, relative or important friend leave or die
  • are obsessed with their absent parent
  • have lost someone they love, but have never really mourned
  • are trying to manage all their painful feelings of loss by themselves
  • feel that they have lost the love of someone they love deeply
  • are suffering from separation anxiety
  • and are adopted or fostered children who miss their birth parent terribly.

The Day the Sea Went Out and Never Came Back is a story for children who have lost someone they love. Eric is a sand dragon who loves the sea very much. Each day, he watches it going out and coming back. But one day, the sea goes out and does not come back. Eric falls on the sand in terrible pain. It feels to him as if he has lost everything. After a while, Eric saves a wild flower by giving it some water. He starts to make a beautiful rock pool garden and, as he does, he finds the courage to feel the full pain of his loss, instead of closing his heart.
