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. Helping a grieving child.
