Hope During Grief: Some Picture Books

Recently I looked through picture books in our countywide library system looking with intergenerational themes of hope during grief.  Here are a few titles related to grieving the loss of a grandparent.  I now have my eyes open for other titles that show older adults helping children through the grieving process, shown in Jacqueline Woodson's book Sweet, Sweet Memory.
