Review – Always There by by Krystaelynne Sanders Diggs
A Children’s Book about Healing from Grief, Illustrations by Nikki Woods Jones
Always There by Krystaelynne Sanders Diggs and Nikki Woods Jones is a touching children’s book that gently navigates the tender subject of grief.The illustrations are sweet and ably show the stages of grief in expression and form.
Through the eyes of a unnamed young girl who finds solace in her teddy bear and family’s embrace, readers explore the natural landscapes of sorrow and healing. The story is a tender reminder that those we love never truly leave us; their spirit remains a guiding light through life’s milestones.
Why Always There is suitable for anyone grieving or experiencing loss
Without specifying the loss, it allows children to apply their own experiences, reflecting the personal nature of grief. The book’s comforting narrative and helpful grieving tools at the end make it a profound resource for young ones learning to understand and process the emotions of loss. A poignant read for children and adults alike, it’s a compassionate aide in the journey through grief.
