Where Are You? A Child’s Book About Loss, by Laura Olivieri, illustrated by Kristin Elder. For younger children, this book describes the feelings a boy has after a death, in simple sentences that comfort without sugarcoating raw emotion. “I look at your picture and your blue shirt in the closet. But you are not here. I miss you.” The explorations of an afterlife don’t come to a pat conclusion or deny the sense of loss – “Maybe you are a raindrop that fell into a cool blue ocean. But I can’t touch you.” But the book ends with the child drawing pictures and remembering happy times: “I remember you. So you are right here.”
