Here is a list of books on grief that have helped me to process my own losses, as well as those of my children.  I’ll continue to update the list as I come across new resources.

For loss of any kind:

“A Grace Disguised: How the Soul Grows through Loss” by Jerry Sittser


Books to help children process death and grief:

“Gram’s Song” by Karyn Henley

“Something to Remember Me By” by Susan V. Bosak

“The Invisible String” by Patrice Karst

“I Miss You” by Pat Thomas

“When Your Grandparent Dies: A Child’s Guide to Good Grief” by Victoria Ryan

If you find that Amazon isn’t carrying any of these books right now, or the cost is extremely high, check out Better World Books for secondhand options!

Note: This page contains affiliate links.  All books listed here are ones that I’ve bought and read and loved.  Even my five-year-old approves of each of the books for children, as listed above.
