- a) Vary the selection of books by age appropriateness and target audience. Include books
books for younger children, adolescence, teens and adults.
- b) Identify the age (example: 5 – 9 years) and target audience for each book. Specify if the
book is appropriate for toddlers, teens, or adults. If the book is for younger children,
please identify specific directions such as “This is a workbook for children under five
years old and a parent or an adult should work with the child to complete the activities.”
- c) Identify specifically who can benefit from reading the book? If the book is designed for
adults to help them learn about children and grief, specify if the adults are parents,
teachers, healthcare workers, or others.
Note: All books should focus on how children cope with death and grief and how adults can best support them. Books should not address general loss and grief, death of a child, or adult bereavement. Course texts cannot be used in the bibliography.
- Include a brief description/overview of each book. The overview should be in your
own words, not off the website or book jacket as this is plagiarism and would
result in a “0” for the assignment. Please stay within a 6 – 8 sentence range for each
book. Summarize and capture the important aspects of the book so that one can quickly
identify helpful resources. “More is not always better.”
