I did a research paper for college on how children are ignored during the grieving process, particularly when the deceased is their parent. Of all the many books and articles I found during my research, this book became my exclusive favorite. Rabbi Grollman understands how a child's mind works during each stage of development and provides excellent suggestions and advice on how to reach a child at each stage of understanding and awareness. I hadn't considered some of the things he mentioned but found everything to be sound, make sense, and above all, they work as I help my now deceased friend's young children cope with her loss in their lives. This book will also help the adult to understand death better and come to terms with the loss. A win/win for everyone.

Fabulous book. Must buy. Very easy and quick read....took me just a few days. A wealth of knowledge. Not religious at all, but gives ways to support and cope with death through various beliefs.

This is an excellent book to assist a parent or professional with helping a child cope with death and the process of grieving. It helps begin the conversation in a loving and honest manner. The guidelines for adults are very helpful. Although, this is written for children it is very useful for adults. So grateful we had this book to guide us when our son lost his grandfather.

It is helpful for parents to understand how children at different ages understand death.
The story to read to children is useful for a wide variety of afterlife beliefs.
It would be improved with a variety of races represented in the pictures of the story

Liked the age appropriate organization and the sections for death by different causes.
Simple
Talking about death of loved ones, even a family pet, with my two teen boys has been difficult. This inspiring book has been a catharsis for them--and for me. The third edition, from the early '90's, still evokes the child in all of us. Sometimes, simple gets the point across easier.
Using a manner of a friendly family Doctor or confidant, Earl Grollman writes about how to cope with the grief, the anger, the hopelessness of it all. Death is never easy--especially if there were unresolved issues. Illustrations and ideas seem to work for adults as well as the younger set. We find "remembering aloud" our best moments with those we have lost in the last few years to be of great importance in an ongoing healing process. Vocalizing to each other our rememberances brings on a gush of needed tears, shadowed smiles and sometimes loving laughs.
"Talking About Death" helps heal the child in all of us. I highly recommend this book for those grieving and those that wish to know what to say or do for those you know in this situation.

As a therapist specializing in grief for 20 years, I have seen many books that help adults to help children with their grief. This is definitely one of the best because it is a simple and effective guide for adults to use during challenging times. It is very hard, as a parent, to focus on a lengthy and very wordy book. Earl Grollman's book is designed to make it easy to find the aspect of the grief process that you are looking for.

Because I also run a pet loss group, I appreciate the sensitivity he brings to this subject. So often, misguided parents or friends try to replace a pet too soon. This author states, "Do not rob your children of the right to grieve, cope with, and overcome their pain." (p. 71)

I also love the list in the back of resources, including groups for various types of loss, and books and movies that may be helpful. Boy would I love to have a lot of those films in my personal library! It's always helpful to have choices as you're moving through the unchartered territory of each unique grief journey.
