Translated from Psychologist Bonnie Zucker from the American Psychological Association, this is an excellent resource for parents and families that are undergoing grief from the passing of a loved one. Little ones have big emotions and when a loved one dies, it can be hard to know how to explain it to a young child, particularly if you are grieving the loss yourself.
Sensitively written and gently illustrated, Something Very Sad Happened explains death in developmentally appropriate terms for two-and three-year-old children. It reassures the child that it is okay to feel sad, and that love never dies.
Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers with more information about how to talk about death, answer your child's questions, and maintain your connection throughout the grieving process.
