Books for children on loss, grief, illness and trauma

The Children's Book Review

This website has collected various storybooks for young children regarding the topics of grief and loss, illness, and trauma. These texts cover a wide range of feelings that young children may experience when facing these topics.

‘As parents and caregivers help children process these often times new and intense emotions, books are a great resource that can be used to open discussion, grow understanding, and offer encouragement and hope. Books are also useful for fostering understanding and empathy in children who have a friend or classmate going through difficult times or even for those who are just curious.’
