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.
Incredibly Lonely, That's Me
In the very center of our grief, loss or transitional times is the intense feeling of loneliness! Our world is turned upside down. How will I make it through? When, if ever, will this haunting feeling disappear? If it doesn't end, what will I do? Is there hope when dealing with this dark emotion of loneliness? Who am I now?
This book embraces the power of relationships and the journey you experience when that relationship is gone. The emotional reality and physical void of this important relationship being gone is validated. Just when you think you can't go on, you learn to hold on to the good things in an effort to move forward and have your gray world become colorful once again.
As a bereavement counselor, Bobby’s Books has become my most utilized resource. I share this with other clinicians on a regular basis. Thank you for the work that you continue to do to get this resource out and into the community and most importantly into the minds and hearts of those that benefit from the healing.
