How Do I Tell ML her friend died yesterday?


This morning I learned of the death of one of ML’s kindergarten classmates.

One of my friends emailed me for recommendations on a book to share with her daughter. From time to time at the library, I am asked to recommend books about death. Usually it is the death of a pet or grandparent.

I read about 7 books at the library today on death for kids. My choice to read to ML tonight is I Miss You: A First Look at Death by Pat Thomas. We’ll make a card and go pick out some flowers to leave at her friend’s home.

I’m heartbroken for her family, my daughter and me.
