Children Also Grieve

Children Also Grieve: Talking about Death and Healing

Book Description

PreSchool-Grade 1–This title, meant to be shared by a child and an adult, will help youngsters deal with grief. The book is divided into four sections. In Henry's Story, the family dog tells of Grandfather's death and describes family members and their various responses (Grandfather died and I am very sad; This is Ling….He is sad after Grandfather died and doesn't feel like playing ball anymore). Each reaction is different, but considered completely normal. Some pages include a question or two designed to encourage children to talk about their feelings (Can you tell me what you think death is?). Colored photographs are interspersed throughout the dog's narration. The My Memory Book section contains 19 pages of fill-in-the-blank sentences and opportunities to add or draw pictures. A two-page glossary defines words associated with death and grieving. The last part, For Caring Adults, provides information about a child's understanding of death, signs of grief, and more. While some children might wonder why the dog is telling the story, this book will encourage dialogue and will aid children in dealing with loss and healing.–Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI

When Children Grieve

When Children Grieve: For Adults to Help Children Deal with Death, Divorce, Pet Loss, Moving, and Other Losses

Book Description

Coauthors of The Grief Recovery Handbook, John W. James and Russell Friedman join with psychotherapist Leslie Landon Matthews to present When Children Grieve: For Adults to Help Children Deal with Death, Divorce, Pet Loss, Moving, and Other Losses. This compassionate manual addresses the nature of grief, purges common myths the worst of which, the authors claim, is that time heals all wounds (only small, positive actions can heal a person, insist James, Friedman and Matthews) and encourages adults to adopt a more healthy approach to grief themselves, so that they, in turn, can help children.
