Although adults hope to protect children from difficult situations and feelings, this is not always possible. There are times when life events cause even young children to feel tremendous grief and sadness. This book provides a welcome resource for those times.
Reading this book with a child will normalize their feelings and assure them that it is important to talk about them. The author provides many examples of situations that may cause sadness and also shows the many different ways in which a child may be affected. This allows the book to be helpful for many different situations. In addition, there are suggestions of things that a child can do to cope. For example, talking with a trusted adult or expressing emotions through art or music.
This illustrated and short book is a wonderful resource. It is highly recommended.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
