For World Book Day we’ve stuck to what we know – we thought this was a good time to focus on the great books out there for helping children cope with bereavement.
These books are great to read with children to help understand death or bereavement. Good for helping your child at a time of bereavement, or ready for when they start asking questions.
Always and Forever, Alan Durrant
Feather Pillows, Rose Impey and Robin Bell Corfield
Someone Very Important Has Just Died, Mary Turner
The Huge Bag of Worries, Virginia Ironside
What Is Death? Etan Boritzer
What on earth do you do when Someone Dies?
These books aim to help you deal with a bereaved child in the best way.
Helping Children Cope with Grief, Rosemary Wells
Grief in Children, Atle Dyregrov
Understanding Children’s Experiences of Parental Bereavement, John Holland
There are some great resources out there so that nobody should have to face bereavement alone.
