Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3
Murphy addresses both topics in a direct manner. In the first book, she discusses what death is, how it can happen, how it affects people, funerals and memories, and different ways of coping with such a loss. Though it alludes to the Kübler-Ross model of the five stages of grief, it does not specifically discuss them. The second book talks about different kinds of illnesses, coping mechanisms, and varieties of medical treatments available. Many other titles cover specific illnesses, but Murphy gives an overview of the topic in a way that young readers can understand. In both titles, the two-page chapters include full-color photos and two paragraphs of text that are frank yet sensitive in their approach. Useful books on difficult topics.
