Samantha Jane's Missing Smile
A Story about Coping with the Loss of a Parent
by Julie Kaplow, Ph.D., and Donna Pincus, Ph.D.; illustrated by Beth Spiegel

Samantha Jane lost her smile about a month ago. That's when her dad died. Sometimes her sadness is so intense that she's afraid to let herself feel it. And she's worried about her mom, too, and whether they'll ever be happy again. At the same time, she wonders if it's right to want happiness when her father can't be there to share it.

Written with great sensitivity, this book guides families through the psychological issues that children experience when a parent dies. It offers gentle suggestions that help youngsters recover from this life-changing event.
