Los Angeles, Feb 26: Terminally ill reality TV star Jade Goody is preparing her two sons for her inevitable death by reading them from a children's book that revolves around the theme of death.
The book "Badger's Parting Gifts" tells the story of a group of friends who learn the lesson of life from the death of their pet, a wise old badger.
The tale sees the dying old badger leave his friends a poignant farewell note, as well as the memory of how he touched their lives.
The book was given to Goody by hospital staff so that she could explain the phenomenon of death to her two young sons -- five-year-old Bobby-Jack and four-year-old Freddy.
"It explains about heaven and where people go. I have been reading that to them. But I think my boys know now that I'm dying. Yeah, I think they do now," said the former 'Big Brother' star during an interview with OK magazine.
Goody is now preparing to christen her two children so that she could stay in touch with them even after her death. She plans to say a heart-rending final goodbye to Bobby-Jack and Freddy before sending them away with their father Jeff Brazier so they do not see her last days.
