When children experience bereavement, it can be a very difficult time as they try to cope with unfamiliar feelings and comprehend what dying means. These gentle, reassuring books are perfect for helping children to understand just what they're going through and what happens when someone dies.
Whether your family is facing a personal loss of a family member or friend, or is struggling with the news of a community or national tragedy, find some children's books that can help kids learn about coping with sad and scary news, death, and grief. Read through the book on your own first to see if it is appropriate for your child and applies to your situation. Also, read and discuss just one book at a time with your child so that he has time to process these tough concepts. It helps to consult with your child's pediatrician or a mental health specialist, especially in cases of a close personal loss or intense or prolonged emotions. Looking for more?
