When a loved one dies, it can be hard to know how to explain it to a young child, particularly if you are grieving the loss yourself.

Something Very Sad Happened is intended to be read to two- and three-year-old children to help them understand death and process the loss of a loved one. Written at a developmental level that is appropriate for two- and three-year-olds, the story explains death; lets children know that it is okay to feel sad; and reassures children that they can still love the person who died, and the person who died will always love them.

Since the two- to three-year-old child cannot read, this story is intended to be personalized; certain words are color-coded in red to cue to you to substitute with the appropriate names and pronouns for the person who died.

Beautiful Resource

Bought in anticipation of the death of a Grandparent. A beautiful simple story that will make breaking the news to my 3 year old much gentler when the time comes. I like that the names and pronouns are in a different colour font to prompt you to change them to the appropriate words for your situation.
