Format: Paperback
If you have a child or teenager who has experienced the death of someone close to them, this is a great book to help you help them. It is divided into three parts; death and feelings, funerals and cemeteries, and cremation. It is well-written with complex concepts clearly defined. As a program director at a local center for grieving children, I often recommended this book to parents and caregivers who are struggling to find the right words to help the mourning children in their lives. How many of us feel comfortable talking about funerals or cremation? This book helps to give meaning and understanding to one of the toughest of subjects; death and dying. Reading this book will help bereaved children, teens and the adults who care for them. I highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a must read for any primary school child experiencing the loss of a loved one for the first time. It was helpful for the parents to read as well. It explains things in a way a child can comprehend. It doesn't sugar coat reality, but it doesn't dramatize it either. It talks about "big feelings" and that it's okay to have them. It also touches on blame and guilt in a way that leaves the child reader feeling free from either.
