Below is a list of books on losing a sibling for children. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but we hope it provides you with a place to begin the conversation with your children about losing their sibling. We have provided a description and suggested age range for each book; however, many books intended for younger children may be appropriate to read to older children as well. We hope these books help you and your living children find comfort and understanding.  

For your convenience we have included links to each book on Amazon and Walmart, and many of these books can also be found at your local library.
