Overview

"A boy, age four, could not understand what had happened to a little girl in his nursery school. His mother explained that Angie had died and had been buried in the earth. Later, she found him and his playmates digging in the backyard, "trying to find Angie so that we can play with her."

Books can be a valuable resource in helping a young person understand. Fortunately, in much of the literature for children—folklore, the classics, modern works—there is an abundance of tasteful, truthful, and artistic material.

This book discusses death in general, adult and child responses to it, its treatment in folklore (nursery rhymes, etc.), and the classics of children's literature and books currently available in public and school libraries. For younger and older children: the death of a pet, a friend, a relative, and one's own death.
