Customer Reviews

I have read this to my 5 and 7 yr old after my dad died.
Kimberly J. Talbot
This book includes several passages about God, including one about God giving forgiveness, which is fine for many, but wasn't quite what I was looking for.
E. Richardson
This book is a wonderful resource to help parents and children understand the grief process of children.
JoAnne W. Norris

Format: Paperback
This book helped us explain the death of their grandpa, what was to be expected etc. Our children ages 5,8 and 10 asked for this to be read repeatedly. It helped answer questions and brought forth some very interesting observations. It truly helped in a very trying time. It was written in a very forthright manner yet in language children easily understood. It was our most read book for the weeks prior to papa's death.

Format: Paperback
Well-crafted summary of the grief process, the book has 14 sections of two to three paragraphs that discuss the various aspects of grief, and the ways people cope with the death of loved ones. Written for a young audience, the material is valuable for all ages. While assuming the concept of life after death, this book is sensitive to differences in religious belief and practices and provides opportunities for the young reader to think, to ask questions, and to grow. The illustrations are clever and interesting to young children, they support the message in the text. An introductory message to adults who are working with children offers additional insights and ideas for working through grief.

I had two teenage sons die within a year of each other. My surviving children, ages 5 and 8, LOVED this book. My 5 year-old wanted to take it to her first day of kindergarten, so the teacher could read it to the class. She said that she wanted them to know how she feels. Very well written! A must for any child who is grieving!

Format: Paperback
Not nearly so useful if the person who has died is a sibling, or a parent. The book keeps telling the child to talk to their parents.... and the illustrations have a patchwork quilt cuteness that give an elderly feel to the missing soul. It does deal with anger being okay. It does say it's alright to cry. Not as helpful as I had hoped.

I was looking for a book for a child who had lost her mother (a single parent). The book assumes there is a parent in the child's life. It would be a good book for a traditional and religious family.

I found this book very helpful to my 7 year old when dealing with the stillborn death of his sibling. Reading it together helped us discuss certain emotions that we would not have brought up on our own. I recomend it for elementary age children.

Format: Paperback
Sad Isn't Bad answers the questions children have when dealing with death in the immediate family. These questions were asked in some form by a three year old at the death of her Nana. I would recommend this book for parents who are dealing with the death of a loved one.

This book was helpful in explaining loss to children.
I also used a faith based video, After the Tears, A Gentle Guide to Help Children Understand Death.
Death is such a dificult subject to have to explain to children. It is helpful to have good grief resources.
