About this title


Coping with the death of a loved one is very difficult at any age. This book covers many of the challenges that children encounter when losing someone who is dearly cherished. Sensitive advice is offered through personal letters and notes from children who found ways to cope. Examples are narrated through children who have lost a grandparent, sibling, or pet. This book offers young readers the comfort of addressing their own pain at their own pace.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3 In each book, readers are introduced to four different children through a series of letters and stand-alone stories, and spreads with bullet points offer suggestions, tips, and practical advice. In Death, the author acknowledges that it is normal to feel angry at the deceased person, or to worry that someone else in your family might die. Tips on how to cope are listed, such as talking to someone, collecting special photos, and keeping a journal. In Divorce, Tom writes a letter to his grandma worrying that his life will change for the worse with his dad moving out. His grandmother's response reassures the boy that while his life will change, his parents both still love him, and are there to help him through this transition. While the books tackle difficult topics in a commendable way, they feel chaotic at times. The characters change from page to page, which can be confusing. Hospital opens with letters between a boy who is waiting for an operation and his friend, and then jumps to the story What's the Matter? which describes what happens when a different child's family is afraid to tell him that he's going to be hospitalized. All three titles feature color photos of children of various ethnicities. Additional. Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Half Hollow Hills Community Library, Dix Hills, NY
