This script emphasizes the importance of communicating the various feelings associated with loss and demonstrates coping skills children may employ when experiencing a personal tragedy. The exchange between two characters also models supportive friendships and promotes sensitivity towards peers experiencing a loss. This script is designed to be used with children going through the grieving process and for audiences with some prior knowledge of grief and loss. It is not intended for general audiences.
This script was developed with the support of Minit Mart Foods, Inc. of Bowling Green, Kentucky and Mr. Fred Higgins, in memory of Jamie Gaddie Higgins, a founding member of South Central Kentucky Kids on the Block and a talented, dedicated puppeteer.
