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.
Everett Anderson's Goodbye
A simple, poetic telling of Everett Anderson's feelings as he copes with and accepts the fact of his father's death.
This book discusses a child's loss when his father dies and the different emotions he has because of that death. As the child expresses different emotions, you can help the child by having him/her draw how he/she felt or what they would feel like when they are angry, depressed, etc.

Special Times Always Remembered
Blanchard Valley Hospital, Findlay, OH
"Our community has been very hard-hit by serious unmet grief support needs, so I am looking forward to doing new things to fill in the gaps in our present child-teen bereavement program by introducing Bobby's Books to local schools, churches, libraries and service organizations. My "retirement" dream is beginning!
Thanks for your assistance in making this happen!"
