The Memory Box: A Book about Grief
A beautifully written story and must-have resource for any adult helping a child cope with the loss of a loved one and working through grief.
From the perspective of a young child, author Joanna Rowland artfully describes what it's like to remember and grieve a loved one who has died. The child in the story wonders if she will forget the person who has gone. Other days I wonder if I'll ever stop feeling sad you are gone.
