Sammy Founds a Treasure seeks to accompany children who have experienced the death of someone they love, but is also a tool to enrich the emotional world of all children in relation to a topic that is usually taboo, until it passes close to home.

It tells the story of a young boy, Sammy, whose mum has died but left a very special present for him, which will help him in the process of healing his heart. Before she died, she gathered all her strength and wrote her name in Sammy’s heart. She loved him so much that her love became imprinted in him forever. This present will accompany him always and is so valuable that Sammy wants to share it with other children that, like him, have also lost a beloved one.

Originally published in Spanish in Argentina (October 2020), the book was declared of Media and Cultural Interest by the Parliament of the City of Buenos Aires. It has been recommended by Support line, The Irish Childhood Bereavement Network, Arc Cancer Support Centres, Healthcare Play Specialist Education Trust, and the Association of Hospice and Palliative Care Chaplains, among other organisations.
