When Grammy Goes Away
by Flo Barnett
I’ve finished the first book in my alphabet reading challenge! Ok, I know it’s just a children’s book with a small amount of pages, but the challenge rules said any genre was fine, and I hadn’t decided on a book starting with “W” yet, so this worked out. The fact that I got it free today on Amazon helped out too.
Dealing with the death of a loved one is hard. For a child, understanding and dealing with it is even harder. This book is meant to help children understand death or to give adults a pleasant way of explaining it to them. It almost made me cry…I guess because I was thinking about having to read this one day to my own child. Well written in verse, this book is a great buy to help your children cope during a difficult time and open up the lines of communication–letting children know it’s okay to ask questions and talk about death. The illustrations were wonderful as well. I would recommend it.
