Using Books to Help Build
a Child’s Coping Skills
Bobby’s Books is a program that uses books to help children and adults deal with difficult issues. Using children's literature as a springboard for conversations will give kids the chance to express their feelings and tell their own stories.
I Miss You: A First Look at Death
When a close friend or family member dies, it can be difficult for children to express their feelings. This book helps boys and girls understand that death is a natural complement to life, and that grief and a sense of loss are normal feelings for them to have following a loved one's death.
This book discusses one of the most difficult conversations you will ever have with a child: How do you talk about death? Children's feelings and questions about serious illness and death are looked at in a simple and realistic way. If you have ever told yourself- "I don't know what to say." or "I am afraid I will say the wrong thing."- this book is your guide.
None at this time.
Your program is one that provides an outstanding service to our community.
