I Wish I Could Hold Your Hand A Child's Guide to Grief and Loss
Author(s): Pat Palmer; Dianne O. Burke (Illustrator)
Children's Picture Books | Grief, Loss, and Trauma
A best friend has moved away...Dad no longer lives with the family... A favorite relative or pet has died. This warm and comforting book gently helps the grieving child identify his or her feelings--from denial and anger to guilt and sadness--and learn to accept and deal with them. Expressive illustrations help children discover that it is natural to feel the pain of loss, and that they can help themselves feel better by seeking the comfort they need in healthy ways.
