Why Did You Die? Activities to Help Children Cope with Grief & Loss Book – Death of a loved one is one of the most stressful events in adult life. For children, whose understanding of death is limited and who may not have the skills to cope with extreme emotion, death can be overwhelming. Why Did You Die? offers exercises that help children understand death better; cope with sadness, anger, and fear; and develop self-care skills. Using an art therapy approach this book gives kids creative avenues to express their feelings and to heal from their loss. It starts with an informative section for parents or other adults about how grief in children differs from grief in adults. Then, it's the children's turn. The sensitive activities in Why Did You Die? demystify death, show them how to effectively express their feelings of grief, and recover from the loss.
This book is appropriate for kids between the ages of six and twelve.

"A butterfly lights beside us, like a sunbeam...
