Library JournalJourneyThroughGriefandLoss1218 Facing What No Child Should: Titles on BereavementIn this tender and compassionate book, social worker and bereavement specialist Zucker helps parents and children explore their grief with practical advice for the ongoing journey to healing. He breaks grief down into three phases, emphasizing that bereavement is never really “over,” but only changes over time. He explains how children grieve differently than adults and outlines typical behaviors and concepts for various ages. Practical advice is offered on preparing children for funerals and dealing with family conflict following a death (it’s normal). He also stresses the importance of keeping memories alive, as second-tier losses (like unrealized relationships) are often greater than a death itself. He concludes with an excellent chapter on getting help and provides sample questions to ask potential counselors, not all of whom are qualified as bereavement specialists.— Julianne J.
