Written for very young children who may not yet have a firm grasp on the concept of death, this tender story uses simple, honest language to clarify that death is permanent, and that the child will never again be able to engage in favorite activities with his grandmother. The book makes clear that the loss of a grandparent is greater than that of a toy or pet, and assured kids that it is normal to feel angry, frightened, and sad when grieving. It also helps children distinguish between the emotional pain of grief and the physical pain they may have experienced during routine activities such as outdoor play. Carefully researched and reviewed by therapists who work with preschool and primary-age children, and with an introduction by a clinical psychologist, My Grandma Died offers practical, age-appropriate suggestions for coping with loss.
