Critical illness can cause overwhelming feelings of abandonment and loss. Difficult for adults to face alone, for children the experience is magnified. They have to leave home for an alien hospital world, without the comfort of familiar daily rhythms.

Russell Evans's wife Jean was a play leader who recognized the importance of enabling children to give voice to their feelings, providing opportunities for play and working in partnership with parents. Her practical insights embrace: child development through play and imitation; captivating children's interest; encouragement as a source of healing; practical guidelines for helping children to feel safe and happy; dying children and caring parents.
