Remembering My Grandparent: A Kid's Own Grief Workbook in the Christian Tradition
Honest, caring words and activities--from a Christian perspective--help kids work through their grief.
The death of a grandparent is often a child's first encounter with grief. Why did this happen? How do I feel? Drawing on concepts from psychology and a broad perspective on Christian faith, Remembering My Grandparent provides a sensitive and practical resource that will help children ages 7 to 13 cope with the death of a loved one. Kids can write, draw, pray, create, and express feelings via concrete, hands-on activities including:
- Part One: Remembering after the Funeral
- Part Two: Remembering throughout the Whole Year
- Part Three: Remembering during the Holidays
- Becoming a Memory Detective to uncover clues to their grandparent's own childhood
- Recording favorite memories, photographs and events
- Turning Christmas, Easter and other holidays into times of special remembrance
- Open and gentle, this book will help kids--and their parents with them--understand difficult concepts and communicate deep feelings as they grow through their season of mourning.
