Gran-Gran's Best Trick: A Story for Children Who Have Lost Someone They Loveby L. Dwight Holden, Michael D. Chesworth, Michael Chesworth
This picturebook is designed to help parents help children deal with the loss of someone they love. Although parents naturally want to protect their children from pain, children should not be shielded from this common experience. But they can be helped with the grieving process. This story, based on a real situation, is about a young girl's experience with her grandfather's illness and death from cancer, and her struggle to gain something positive from the loss. The lessons she learns are easily applied to other forms of loss as well. While this story is about death and loss, it is also about learning and growing from experience and about how those we love never leave our hearts. That is love's best trick.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
