When Your Grandparent Dies A Childs Guide to Good Grief Book Review

Terri Forehand

Visitors: 305

This is another book in the Elf Help Books for Kids series which helps parents help their children deal with the painful realities of life and loss. This book can be read alone by older children but be ready to answer questions they may have. The book is also a great read aloud book for parents to read to the grandchildren left behind. The elf character and illustrations softens the text and helps the child to relate to what is being said. It allows good opportunities for the parent to open lines of communication about family values, the love shared with the grandparent, and good ways to remember the loved one.

When a beloved grandparent dies, there is so much pain for everyone in the family. A book like this guide is helpful and a good resource when finding the right words is so hard. Each page goes over a different question or idea making it easy to do a page or two at a time, so you and the child don't feel so overwhelmed.

This book is available at the library or your local bookstore. You will not be disappointed in how well this book addresses the issues of loosing a grandparent. The author is well versed in the issues of loss and you can expect the book to be true and objective, respectful of all cultures. I recommend this book as a resource and aid in helping children deal with the painful loss of a grandparent.

The book: WHEN YOUR GRANDPARENT DIES: A Child's Guide to Good Grief may be the answer.
