Library Journal Review

Parents of children living in an era of assassination, air disaster, and space tragedy need this clear, extremely readable guide to helping their kids deal with death. Schaefer, a funeral director and lecturer, and Lyons, a journalist, quote many psychologists and social workers as they discuss areas like children's reactions (anger, guilt, responsibility) to murder, suicide, and SID; to attending the funeral; and to the normal biological ``message'' of death (``wore out''). They stress flexibility and age-related needs and also provide a useful crisis section, but they might have omitted statements like ``death is a form of abandonment'' and ``the greatest denial is a closed casket.'' Otherwise, highly recommended. Bibliography and list of support groups not seen. Janice Arenofsky, formerly with Arizona State Lib., Phoenix (c) Copyright 2010.
