So many of you are grappling with how to explain Aidan's death to your children and how to help them understand a very tough life lesson. Attached is a link to a list of suggested books provided by the Sudden Unexplained Death in Children (SUDC) organization, which has been a source of tremendous support for us.
I'd like to add to that list the book that Aidan's First Grade teacher gave to us, written by the author of The Kissing Hand: Chester Raccoon and the Acorn Full of Memories by Audrey Penn.
Please let us know what we can do to help your family during this time. http://sudc.org/IfYouAreBereaved/BookList/ChildrenGriefSupportBookList/tabid/167/Default.aspx
