One of the vital components of Bobby's Books is the training we offer to the community. This training teaches both professional and lay audiences alike how to identify children's grief and realize how different and unique it truly is. Before you can know how to help a child in your life, you must first learn what they are going through.
We offer two different trainings: Don't Flush the Goldfish educational seminar, and Train the Trainer workshops. Continuing Education credits are also available. Please take a moment to learn more about each seminar by clicking on the links above and learn how to take that next step toward helping a child in your life.

The 20 books specifically chosen to be the core selection of Bobby's Books are amazing. The core selections offer a variety of themes, relationships and family dynamics to choose from in order to serve clients respectfully and within their comfort zone. Children and their adult caretakers are able to identify needs and process feelings through the characters in the story. Insight may increase in a nurturing atmosphere that fosters understanding, acceptance and growth.
