The death of a grandparent is often a child's first encounter with grief. Why did this happen? How do I feel? Drawing on concepts from psychology and a broad perspective on Christian faith, Remembering My Grandparent
provides a sensitive and practical resource that will help children cope with the death of a loved one. Kids can write, draw, pray, create, and express feelings via concrete, hands-on activities including:
- Becoming a Memory Detective to uncover clues to their grandparent's own childhood
- Recording favorite memories, photographs and events
- Christmas, Easter and other holidays into times of special remembrance
Open and gentle, this book will help kids--and their parents with them--understand difficult concepts and communicate deep feelings as they grow through their season of mourning. Recommended for ages 7 to 13.
