Kids Talkin' About Death is an insightful look into how kids see and interpret death, from the loss of a parent to helping a grieving friend. Candid, charming and astute, the kids bring death out into the open in a positive way. The taboo of death and the afterlife is explored through honest and at times playful conversations and animation.

Entertaining and heart-warming, this documentary teaches all of us that death should be an important part of understanding life.

Made especially for children aged 9-12, Kids Talkin' About Death is a safe and welcoming discussion starter for an often difficult topic. The accompanying study guide provides ideas for taking discussions further in the classroom and at home.
