Badger's Parting Gifts

Badger's Parting Gifts summary ¿ 8 Susan Varley Ô 8 read D simply directly and honestly this uplifting story will be of tremendous value to both children and their parents A gentle classic that can help foster communication care and understandin. Badger s parting giftsBy Susan VarleyThis is a poignant and touching story about a Badger who is very old and has accepted that he will soon die His only worry is the effect it will have on his friends The time arrives and his friends are as badger feared desperately upset However in time they remember the valuable moments they spent with Badger and the pain begins to be surpassed by fond memoriesThis book deals with the subject of death in a very sensitive and responsible way It conveys that death is a very natural and inevitable part of life and does not shy away from the unavoidable hurt that ensues Nevertheless this book manages to confront these issues without being bleak and suggests that though the person has passed away they still live within us through our shared experience There are no angels or promises of paradise this book does not project a religious perspective but demonstrates a Humanist viewpoint that an individual s responsibility and legacy lies in the positive influence and the relationships they nurture during their lifetime Badger s Parting Gifts offers the simple consolation that Each of the animals had a special memory of badger something he had taught them that they could now do extremely well I would recommend this as a great book to use if you find you have to deal with the subject of death in class The copy I read was published in 1984 and though beautifully illustrated would not have been vibrant enough to have made it on to the shelves now However the dated appearance of the book seems to award it weight and authority on the issues it confronts so tenderly

Badger s Parting Gifts is a wonderfully laid out book which deals with bereavement in such a way that it is easily understood by children After the unfortunate death of Badger his animal friends reflect on their memories of him From learning to tie a tie to ice skating all the memories are pleasant and symbolic of the good life Badger left as well as the lessons they all learned from him Despite the obviously sad theme that runs through this children s book there is an element of hope and happiness that comes from what the animals say about Badger This book can help children understand the trauma of death in a sensitive and caring way Further the use of animals as the characters can be comforting to children rather than the characters being human Despite being a picture book Susan Varley s book can be used readily and freely in PSHE lessons to promote discussion of life and it s counterparts I do believe Badger s Parting Gifts is suited to late KS2 as there is an element of empathy that some children will be able to relate to from the written text
