- Benjamin's Story of Grief and Healingaf Birte Overlade
This is a masterpiece!
A wonderful little book. You are left with a warm feeling of completion - that this is precisely how a grief should be processed and treated – kept within the child’s sphere of reality. It’s the child’s voice we hear. It’s the child who is allowed to present his grief. It’s the child who gets to experience and explore all the facets of grief at close range, where the child’s curiosity penetrates the border of grief that we adults think of as inviolable. In this way, the child’s grief is presented as fine, respectful and understandable. A unifying family-inclusive grief, which the boy can move on with in the child mind, and which can strengthen him in adult life. The text is credible and well written.
