After losing her mother-in-law to cancer, New Lambton mum-of-two Kate Worrall wanted to find a simple way to share treasured photos and memories with her young sons. When she was unable to find anything suitable, Kate was inspired to come up with her own solution, and Little Reminders was born.
Little Reminders is an illustrated storybook that has been specifically designed to allow families to customise it with photos of their loved ones who have passed.
“When our sons were born, it was important to me and my husband that they understood who Debbie was and how much she would have loved them,” Kate said.
“The book turned out to be a great conversation starter with the kids and really healing for our whole family.”
Kate said she hopes Little Reminders will help others who have experienced grief and loss, and become a treasured keepsake for many families.
The book’s approach has been praised by experts for its straightforward approach to a difficult topic.
“Many adults find talking about someone who has died uncomfortable, particularly while they are dealing with their own grief. For children, this silence can be confusing and distressing,” said Robert Sams, local Executive Director of Lifeline Australia.
“Little Reminders provides a simple and non-confrontational way to open up the conversation about a loved one who is gone but not forgotten,” Mr Sams said.
With a background in positive psychology and business, Kate’s uplifting books are aimed at improving the wellbeing of her readers.
