Children's Books About Death and Grief. When grief hits a family, children often become the focus – how to talk to them about death, how to recognize if they are grieving ‘normally’, how to create open communication and dialogue.
When we ask adults what they need in their grief often their first response is what they need for their children. We have number of articles on WYG offering this type of support. We have posts on the impact of age on understanding, on grief journals and workbooks for kids, on the risks of using euphemisms, on art activities for grieving kids, on art activities for grieving kids and adults, on talking to kids about suicide, an activity book for kids after a suicide, on holiday activities for kids, and more holiday activities for kids. We also have an article reminding you why it is important to take care of yourself in order to better care for the children in your life. But one thing that we don’t have is a list of kids books about death and grief, despite the fact that we get asked about this fairly often. We have talked about journal, activity and workbooks for kids, but sometimes a story is the best way to open a dialogue. Often reading a story can help kids know they are not alone and normalize what they are experiencing.
It can offer a safe way to open a dialogue with children about death and grief, in groups, as a family, or one- on- one. So today, here it is!

Grief Resources The Dougy Center. Print. A safe place to talk. A safe place to listen. People grieving a death often feel like no one understands what they’re going through. And truthfully, no one’s grief is exactly same. But people tell us the help they appreciate most comes from sharing with others who are also grieving a death.
Our children’s support groups are designed around age, type of death, and the connection to the person who died. Parent/adult caregiver groups run at the same time as the children’s support groups. Around 5. 00 children and 3. Each person decides how long he or she wants to be at The Dougy Center. In the groups, there is no right or wrong way to be.
Nobody will tell you it’s time to move on. Or that an emotion you have is wrong or inappropriate. Here, through talking and listening, you’re free to find hope and comfort in your own personal way. Children can express themselves through play, music, art, games, and sharing.
Our unique approach, using peer group support to help people discover their own way through grief, has made The Dougy Center a worldwide leader in the field. More than 5. 00 programs based on our model now thrive in the U. S., Canada, Africa, Australia, Europe and Japan. Our guidebooks assist parents, schools and others who deal with children affected by death, and our children’s activity books provide them an outlet for expression.
