About the Book

Talking about grief and loss is challenging for anyone. It is particularly difficult when someone dies suddenly or violently. I wrote this book to provide caregivers, teachers, school counselors, and clinicians with a tool to help kids begin to talk about their experience of loss. The storyline utilizes extended family members to demonstrate typical expressions of grief and loss. For example, while “Honey" is able to demonstrate sadness and grief, the narrator, Kaylee, describes herself as being in denial. For his part, "Uncle Joe" displays anger while "Aunt Amelia" engages in bargaining. Finally, Nana, the family matriarch, begins to facilitate the acceptance processes as she encourages them all to celebrate the life of their lost love one. I hope you find this book and the subsequent discussion questions and tips helpful as you support a grieving child in your care.
