"This book is a valuable addition for the therapist, guidance counselor, school psychologist, and anyone working or living with grieving children. In simple, moving language, Dina Wolfman Baker provides a comforting yet honest view of a young child experiencing the death of a parent from illness.”
Sometimes it can be difficult to know how to talk with a child about the illness or death of a parent. I Remember Mommy’s Smile offers parents and other caregivers an opportunity to open the door to dialogue. It also shows children that they are not alone or strange; others have gone through this type of sadness and loss, and they have ended up okay. As author Dina Wolfman Baker understands from her own experience, knowing you’re not alone can mean a great deal. These are her memoirs…written from her child self to other children, with the sensitivity, honesty and directness that can only come from having been there.
