Book Review- When Your Grandparent Dies: A Child's Guide to Good Grief

When Your Grandparent Dies- A Child's Guide to Good Grief

Author- Victoria Ryan

Illustrated by- R.W.Ryan

This is a great book to read to your children when a grandparent dies. It is such a painful time when a grandparent is gone, because someone also has lost a beloved parent. The pain for the adults may make it difficult to find the right words to help a child with his or her grief.

This book is just what you need to bridge the gap between what you want to share with your child and what is too painful to find the right words to express. The pages are delightfully illustrated with the elf character present in other Elf Help Books. Kids love the pictures and the text is honest and objective so will not interfere with family values or cultures.

This book is at your library or local bookstore. You and your children will find the book a help in this sad time.
