Explaining Death to Children

While death is a natural, normal part of life, it can be a difficult concept to explain to children. If you have young children who are watching a loved one die–whether it be a parent, grandparent, sibling or friend–the patient’s hospice care team can support you in helping your children understand what’s happening.

We recommend the following books to use in explaining death to children:

Hospicare has copies of these books available in our library and on our wish list as we like to give copies to families with children.
