Saying Goodbye is my hands-down favorite book to use with children who have experienced the death of a loved one. The book is straight-forward about crying, funerals and fear, but written in a very warm, caring way. I used it for 4 years at my previous school, and had to order one for my new setting. I have worked primarily with children in grades 3-5, and have just ordered the companion book Goodbye Forever for younger children.
