Since Aeron’s death, we’ve dreamt about publishing a book with the hopes of helping young children process the death of a loved one. This book is inspired by a desire to preserve the sibling memories and loving relationship for Aeron’s older sister despite her younger brother’s physical absence.
We hope this book will provide a conversation starting point for families to talk openly about death with a child and provide a space to cherish memories of deceased loved ones. And of course, we also like the idea of having a book as a cherished keepsake for anyone who knows and loves Aeron
“Aeron In the Sky is a beautifully illustrated and well-written, thought-out book that will help children talk about death, especially the death of a sibling. Aeron in the Sky is unique in that it allows siblings to envision a relationship with a loved one, even after death. It utilizes a relatable approach to allow children to understand death in a beautiful way. As a pediatric psychologist, I would highly recommend this book to help initiate a difficult conversation in a comprehensible way. It ends with the authors utilizing simple and concrete language to provide parents with tips and strategies to explain death to their children.”
