Teens grieve differently from adults and often get lost in the shuffle after the death of a loved one. "Weird Is Normal When Teenagers Grieve" is unique because it is a self-help book for grieving teens written by an actively grieving teen. Author Jenny Lee Wheeler lost her father to cancer when she was fourteen and validates for her peers that they have the right to grieve in their own way and according to their own timetable, that their grief attacks might be different from those of adults around them, and that they aren't going crazy if they see signs from their loved one. Dr. Heidi Horsley writes in the Foreword, "Teen grief is often overlooked and unacknowledged. ... Jenny's journey will strike a note with teenagers everywhere who have experienced the loss of someone they love. She gives sound advice and lets them know they are not alone."

The Day the Sea Went Out and Never Came Back is a story for children who have lost someone they love. Eric is a sand dragon who loves the sea very much. Each day, he watches it going out and coming back. His sea is beautiful indeed to him. But one day, the sea goes out and does not come back. Eric waits and waits, but it does not come back. So he falls on the sand in terrible pain. It feels to him as if he has lost everything. After many bleak days, Eric sees a little wild flower. It is dying. Eric knows he must save it. He finds water. More and more flowers appear and so Eric starts to make a beautiful rock pool garden. And as he does, he finds the courage to feel the full pain of his loss, instead of closing his heart. He realises that his memories of his precious sea are like a special kind of treasure in his mind, a treasure he will never lose.

Deborah Binner believed the stage was set for a contented midlife after a rocky childhood. A happy marriage, good job, lovely home and three daughters moving relatively peacefully towards adolescence and beyond. What more could she ask for? Then in 2013 her world came crashing down when an 'innocuous' pain in her 15 year-old daughter's leg turned into a cancer diagnosis. And despite an agonising three-year battle with bone cancer, Chloe died aged just 18 and two weeks. Flung into a tsunami of grief, the small family tried to navigate a path to survival. But fate intervened again. Just 18 months after Chloe's death, Deborah's beloved husband Simon was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. As a man who was adamant that "the endgame of motor neurone disease is not for me", he ended his life in a Swiss suicide clinic within months of diagnosis. Their family's story was the subject of a BAFTA-nominated BBC documentary, How to Die: Simon's Choice. In Yet Here I Am, Deborah looks back at a life ripped apart by so much loss out of the natural order of things. Brutally frank, searingly honest and heartbreakingly poignant, she charts her remarkable journey from suicidal grief to some kind of survival and eventually, to a new form of happiness. This is a book about the resilience of the human spirit, hope in the face of agonising despair and the power of love.

The two become fast friends and spend most days in the woods behind Leslie's house, where they invent an enchanted land called Terabithia.

"When summer started, I got Grampa's stopwatch," a small child says. "I don't want his stopwatch. I want him." Grampa used to time everything. A race to the end of the street and back: 24 seconds. Eating bubblegum ice cream: 1 minute, 58 seconds. But now, Grampa's gone. "There are no more Grampa minutes, Grampa seconds," the child says. "Time just stops." As the seasons come and go, the stopwatch becomes a cherished symbol of remembrance, and the child uses it to carry on Grampa's favorite pastimes and traditions. Loretta Garbutt uses subtlety and sensitivity to explore the five stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance) in this moving picture book story of loss. It features a gender-neutral main character (no first name or pronouns are given) making the story universally relatable. This is a perfect choice for fostering discussions with children about their emotions, particularly the feeling of loss. It also offers a poignant representation of an intergenerational relationship between a grandfather and grandchild. Carmen Mok's expressive and thoughtful illustrations employ a limited color palette to convey the character's emotional trajectory. There are curriculum applications here in social-emotional development as well as character education lessons in caring and resilience. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Verdana} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Verdana; min-height: 12.0px}
