Guiding Your Child Through Grief

By James P. Emswiler & Mary Ann Emswiler

This is still my most favorite book for parents, teachers and caregivers of children who are grieving the death of a loved one. This book covers almost every single topic about grief and it gives a ton of practical tips. I can’t emphasize enough how great I think this book is and I believe it is a must-have on every home self.

When Someone Very Special Dies

By Marge Heegaard

This is a wonderful resource for parents, teachers, caregivers of children who are grieving the death of a loved one. It is easy to use, with questions to ask the children and lots of space for them to write or draw. I have used this book several times with grieving children and I highly recommend it.
