We all need a little help understanding suicide—so let’s talk about it.

We tend to avoid talking about the things that make us uncomfortable. Suicide is one of those things. So many of us feel it’s a conversation that’s too much for kids to handle, but lack of information doesn’t help either. We hope this book will help you open up honest conversation with the kids in your life and begin to provide a foundation to equip them with a better understanding of the feelings, emotions, and thoughts about it as they grow up.

Angela N. Frazier (she/her), MPH, is a speaker and mental health influencer. She received her bachelor of science in health sciences and communication from Portland State University and holds a master in public health from UTHealth School of Public Health.

Awesome Kids Book on a Tough Subject

Wow! I was so unsure and unsettled about this topic and how it would be presented to a kid, but Angela Frazier lays it out so beautifully and empathically in terms a kid can understand. She makes parents feel comfortable talking to their kids about and kids feel comfortable sharing with adults how they are feeling. As someone who has lost a parent to suicide, Angela speaks from the heart, and you feel it in every word she writes here. With numbers on the rise for suicide among kids, it’s critical parents have conversations with their kids about this. This is the book to use to do it.

A kids book about suicide

Author Angela Frazier is a sensitive friend to the child who is forced to confront the pain and confusion around suicide. She comforts the child and gives the child emotional tools with which to handle something that most adults avoid, and she does so without leaning on mandated religious perspectives or typical treacle that are often mere avoidance tactics. Drawing the child in rather than telling a child what to believe is the best pedagogy and kindest invitation to develop the child's own growth in the face of painful reality. Frazier does this with compassion and skill.

My husband died by suicide and when it was time to discuss the particulars of his death this book was a very helpful secondary resource for my elementary schooler to have. One of the few books out there that avoids the many potential emotional landmines this topic can bring.
