One Last Hug

One Last Hug

I came across this documentary this weekend on HBO. I definitely recommend it! It gives great insight to bereavement camps and the way children view death. According to my U-Verse info, it will be available until May 12, 2014.

I personally have this book sitting on my bookshelf — it’s a great addition to make to your child life section!

When facing a life-challenging or even terminal illness, it’s all about being normal. That’s what kids and teens want for themselves and from the people around them. With wit, wisdom, and courage, young people ages 7–21 tell in their own words what it’s like to be ill while trying to live each minute of their daily lives…”

This Book Is For All Kids, But Especially My Sister Libby. Libby Died. 

I’ve bought this book myself — it’s a children’s book written by a little boy, Jack, about his sister, Libby. In it he asks questions and makes comments in a very honest way. Definitely a must have for those sad moments in life.
