Am I Going to Die?

$23.50

Thinking in pictures

People who can’t read or who don’t like written words are often very good at reading pictures. That’s why there are no words in these picture stories.
These books all tell a story, but they also let the reader tell their own story – the one they see in the pictures. This can tell you a lot about a person’s inner world and their understanding of situations. There is plenty to talk about and each story explores feelings and relationships as well as giving information.

Age: Teens and Special Needs

This book tells the story of John, who has an intellectual disability. John is dying. The pictures follow him in his illness and his final days. They are designed to help the reader make sense of what is happening to them or someone they know who is ill. The pictures help them to ask questions or share their concerns.


“If you know someone with a learning disability who is very ill, you can use the pictures in this book and the sample storyline to help them understand more about their illness and dying.” 

— Down's Syndrome Association Journal, 2009


“Although the story in Am I Going to Die? is fictional, it is based on the real life experiences of ten people with learning disabilities. The book draws on what was important for the participants when they were ill and dying and demonstrates best practice as identified by them.” 

— Inside Palliative Care. Volume 8, June 2009
