    It’s often very difficult to help a child cope with loss; sometimes we don’t know how to process the grief ourselves. Dealing with difficult subjects vicariously through the characters in stories can sometimes help us find the words to discuss what’s happened with our little ones. Sometimes there are no words. Sometimes there are just tears. And that’s okay too. Children's Librarian Josh has carefully selected a handful of books to help your family through the toughest times.
