Humanist Children's Books
by Tricia Budd

The Rosie Stories

Tricia, an experienced primary school teacher, has written three exciting books for teachers, parents and children. They explore a child's feelings towards the arrival of a new baby, marriage and the death of a loved one. They are written from a sensitive humanist perspective and include the ceremonies that mark these important occasions in our lives.
