01) Books that help bereaved children

“As a new wave of emotional wellbeing books for children hits the market, meet Clare Shaw, an author of therapeutic stories covering tricky subjects such as bereavement.

“All too often I find myself reading another article around child mental health and the ‘crisis’ we now find ourselves in. Reports that one in eight children in England have a mental health disorder. Yet, only a third receive the treatment they need. These figures make for upsetting reading.

“My greatest fear is that every child has worries and emotions that they often can’t understand or control. These feelings could turn into something bigger and more troublesome as the child grows, but in the right way, at the right time, could so simply be relieved while still young. I wanted to find a way that could help and writing appears to be my way.”

02) Love Will Never Die: Helping children through bereavement

“Following the death of a loved one, it is vital that children have the opportunity to grieve. Using direct but child-friendly language, this book addresses the mixed emotions felt by a child during that process. It offers support and understanding alongside areas where the child can express themselves through writing and drawing.”
