    1. My mother died when I was 11 1/2 and this is one book, of many, I wish had been available. Compiled by a photojournalist who’s written many similar books, this one has stories of children from about ages 5-16 who have lost a parent to death. The kids basically tell their own stories and the author took their photos. Tries to be comprehensive: many ages of the kids and many reasons for the deaths of the parents, but I would have appreciated even more diversity and many more kids’ stories. Cou [...]


    2. No imminent tragedies that I'm aware of in our family/clan - just a topic that I have thought about occasionally. (Also read “Let’s Talk About When A Parent Dies”.)The author interviewed eighteen different children, aged seven to sixteen, who lost a parent. Each child’s story of their experience and reaction to the parent’s death is presented in essay form with accompanying photos of surviving parents and siblings.This book could be useful to help a child deal with the loss of their ow [...]


    3. I was ten years old when my father died unexpectedly from a heart attack. My family was devastated and I remember feeling extremely isolated from my peers; I was irrevocably changed and I had no idea how to cope with the grief. How it Feels When a Parent Dies was a godsend of a book. Not only did the words of each child ring true to me, just looking at their pictures made it feel real - I was not alone. And knowing that I wasn't alone was liberating. This book helped me through some rough times. [...]


    4. The photography makes the book feel dated, but the stories are timeless. I'm reading 17 years after losing my mom, and there is still something healing about hearing similar stories from children. So many kids who lose a parent don't know anyone else who has, so this book makes a lonely experience a little less so.
