Yesterday You Were Here

Author: Melissa Little

Publisher: Wakefield Press

One copy to give away

This touching, carefully sparse picture book for young readers aims to help young people dealing with the loss of a loved one to process and talk about their grief. ‘In sadness this book will be a kind friend.’ -Michael O’Connell, AM, APM, Commissioner for Victims’ Rights

Loss at anytime is challenging, but it is part of life. Grief is our natural response to loss. Imagine it through the lens of a child. Yesterday you were here. Today you are gone. How do we make sense of the sadness?

Yesterday You Were Here won’t answer all the questions that may arise, but simply promote discussion and give children the opportunity to think about their grief.

There is a help page for parents and caregivers to help guide their children through the book, please read this before reading the story. There are also interactive pages to encourage your children to write or draw how they feel, a memory they have or what they would like to say to their special friend. Ages: 3-6 years old
