After The Funeral offers some very real help to parents, teachers, and other caring adults dealing with the complex reactions that children have to a loss.
Its simple format encourages honest dialogue and compassionately helps children to recognize some of the raw feelings of grief - and then confront them honestly. In particular, this book encourages grieving children to reach out to trusted people in their lives for support, not only those within the family, but also the larger community--teachers, friends, and support group members.
We especially appreciate the multicultural illustrations and the concise manner in which this book addresses a variety of concerns commonly observed in grieving youngsters.
