This book is great for all children! It gives in great detail on how you die, what a funeral is like and there are little pauses to ask questions.
  MadelineLuna | Mar 19, 2016 |
It's often said that children are resilient and can bounce back from anything, but when death strikes, children are more intune that we often give them credit for. I MISS YOU is a very intimate portrait of how to help children deal with loss of a loved one. This is such a lightly worded, yet deeply introspective view of death and ways that a child can find to cope in positive ways. Excellent work. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764117645, Paperback)

When a close friend or family member dies, it can be difficult for children to express their feelings. This book helps boys and girls understand that death is a natural complement to life, and that grief and a sense of loss are normal feelings for them to have following a loved one's death. Titles in this sensitively presented series explore the dynamics of various relationships experienced by children of preschool through early school age. Kids are encouraged to understand personal feelings and social problems as a first step in dealing with them. Written by psychotherapist and counselor Pat Thomas, these books promote positive interaction among children, parents, and teachers. The story lines are simple and direct--easily accessible to younger children. There are full-color illustrations on every page.
