Grief, Loss, and Healing

Educators play a pivotal role in the lives of their students, especially in critical times such as when they are dealing with the loss of a family member or friend. In this section you'll find well-crafted books that help students build resiliency, offer comfort and validation, introduce coping techniques, and help guide conversations about grief and loss. We hope these books help you feel prepared to support the lives of the kids and families you serve, even in the toughest of times.

In partnership with the New York Life Foundation, First Book has updated this section to make even more books and resources available that support grieving youth. Together, the New York Life Foundation and First Book hope to empower and equip those working with bereaved children and families by providing necessary resources and meaningful stories.
