Read With Me 2020 #42

 Hey there and welcome to this weeks Read With Me linky.

I've been trying to get ahead of myself in recent weeks, scheduling posts in advance and adding links at a later to date to try and save myself some time.

Because of that I haven't had the chance to ask an important question. My lovely Nana passed away a couple of weeks ago and I was wondering if anyone had any good recommendations on children's books that cover the topic of loss?

Huge thank you in advance.

Now onto a happier note, my favourite post last week came from Carole with her impressive reading round up.

On to the link up. If you'd like to know more about this linky do visit my Read With Me page. For all regular linkers you know the drill, max of two posts and please make the effort to comment on others. You can of course share my badge below:

Happy reading.


  1. So sorry to hear that about your Nana. I hope you are OK. Unfortunately I don't have any book recommendations, but I hope someone else will.

  2. Hi Chantelle, so sorry to hear about your nana. It's hard to explain the concept to children. I don't know of any chapter books about dealing with loss but Rabbityness by Jo Empson and The Garden of Hope by Isabel Otter are lovely picture books. They don't mention death specifically but the characters are coming to terms with loss. I've also heard people recommend the last Mog book by Judith Kerr or The Sad Book by Michael Rosen.

  3. Sorry to hear about your Nana. My mum died earlier this year, but I didn't think to look for a book for my boys, so no I don't have any book suggestions


I love hearing from my readers so please feel free to leave comment.
