The Scar

Author: Charlotte Moundlic

Recommended age group: 5-9 years

Description: When the boy in this story wakes to find that his mother has died, he is overwhelmed with sadness, anger, and fear that he will forget her. He shuts all the windows to keep in his mother’s familiar smell and scratches open the cut on his knee to remember her comforting voice. Because he doesn’t feel he can talk to his dad anymore he finds comfort through his Grandma who teaches him another way to feel that his mum’s love is near.
