Children are bewildered and full of questions when a grandparent, friend, or someone they love dies. We want to help, and yet the needs of a five-year-old are very different from those of an older child. Theresa Huntley shows how children at various ages understand death and offers positive ways for parents and other caring adults to help them grieve.

This book will help you listen to children, answer their questions, and guide them in coping with their feelings. Also included are helps for dealing with the behavior changes that often accompany a child's grief.
