Start the conversation around grief—a normal and healthy experience we all share as human beings.

Grief is a small word for a BIG experience. Grief affects us emotionally, but also physically, socially, spiritually, and really in every part of our lives. But the important thing to know is that grief is natural, normal, and healthy, and it’s an experience we all have because we’re human. 

Brennan C. Wood (she/her) is the award-winning executive director of Dougy Center: The National Grief Center for Children & Families. Dougy Center provides support and resources for children and families who are grieving. Brennan loves spending time with her awesome blended family and honors her mother’s legacy by making every day a celebration!

I’m an adult who lost my father when I was barely 30. I previewed this book before giving it my pre-teen niece/nephew who have just lost their mother. I honestly think this book should be passed along to all people who lose a loved one…. it’s helpful reminders on the duality of emotions during a season of mourning, particularly if you’ve lost a loved one to cancer or illness over a stretch of time. It can be confusing to feel joy and pain— growth and loss— deep relief and intense sadness— all at the same time.

The kids’ father told me the book was particularly helpful to start conversation with his younger son.


This simple but impactful book met the kids right where they needed.

I bought this book for my 8 year old sister after we lost our mother, and it’s been therapeutic to read for the both of us, and it’s helped open up the door to some awesome conversations. I highly recommend it
