Why Did You Die?
Activities to Help Children Cope with Grief and Loss

by Erika Leeuwenburgh and Ellen Goldring

When a loved one dies, children face a range of feelings, thoughts, myths, and questions. This workbook helps them come to terms with their loss.
The first section, addressed to adults, describes the grief process and what to expect as it progresses. This is followed by activities that guide the child through the issues he or she must eventually confront. These activities help the child express difficult feelings, separate myths from facts, and understand the finality of death. Direct yet nonthreatening, this book offers a secular approach that benefits all grieving youngsters.
