Children's Literature - Meredith KigerOne in the "Really Useful Handbook" series, this edition deals with loss, whether it be personal life changes, family changes or illness and bereavement. Organized into four chapters, the last chapter reviews the five stages of grief and encourages getting help for dealing with loss of any kind. The interesting layout and graphics in this handbook will be highly appealing to preteens and teens alike. Lists of how-to's, boxed questions and answers, and tips and vignettes from real teens add interest to an otherwise sensitive subject matter. The book reinforces the fact that we all deal with loss of one kind or another and learning skills to cope or help others cope is a plus. A glossary, an index, and sources for further info are included. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
