A Sky of Diamonds

A Story for Children About Loss, Grief and Hope

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
When Mia learns that her mother has died, all the colour is sapped from
her world. She feels guilty, angry, sad and lost, and she doesn't
know what to do to feel better. Little by little, with her Dad’s
help, Mia finds her own, special way of coping. When she feels sad or
lonely, she looks to the stars. An invaluable resource for anyone
supporting a grieving child, this storybook for children aged 5-9
addresses loss, grief, and hope. It highlights the importance of giving
children time to work through their feelings and provides thoughtful
activities to help them cope.
