Balloons - Children's bereavement website with a powerful reading list.
As part of a website which deals with the difficult subject of death we developed a comprehensive reading resources database, which list books (their overview, the author and ISBN code) that can help explain death and that talk about bereavement. So as not to overwhelm the visitor that books have been split into categories for example, the under 5's, 5 to 8 years, teenagers, suicide, baby mortality... On each page of the website a handful of the books that are relevant to the page will appear in the sidebar. The selection is shuffled each time the page is visited, the idea being that a book title and snippet may capture the readers interest without hitting them with a big long list of books.
