Research month 1

Knowing that the last week this month is Holy Week (and I am a clergyperson) and I might be a tad busy, I am jumping in to the reading and analysis.

 I am currently working on my own manuscript on a child's view of the death of a grandparent and one on hospice
so my first week is devoted to picture books about loss. Yesterday I looked at 28 titles, all published since 2003.

Yes it was a multi-tissue session! Pictured is Munster, one in a line of beloved missed pets!

The best were Sammy in the Sky by Barbara Walsh (pet) and The Scar by Charlotte Moundlic  (mother).

Predictably there is some baaaaaaad stuff - bizarre art, kids who experienced every single reaction that adults predict they will with great speed and easy resolution, books with no emotion and some with too much. The role of God and heaven are all over the place!

I found none on: hospice care, euthanasia for pets, the unusual behavior of adults to the loss, customs and traditions of any culture other than white Protestant Northern American.
