The Great Big Sad
Helping Children Navigate Grief and Loss
Stories to help kids process grief
Follow up to Tell God How You Feel and God Hears Your Heart
Written by counselor and mom
We all know that loss is the “great big sad” of life. Grief is a journey we all take in life. How do parents and caregivers help children navigate grief? The Great Big Sad follows familiar siblings Josh and Mia (from Tell God How You Feel and God Hears Your Heart) as they face the death of their beloved grandmother. It is a discipleship tool for parents and
caregivers in helping children learn that people grieve in different ways, how to talk about grief, ways to honor and remember a loved one, and how Jesus knows and understands their tears.
