Recommended Books

  • Death, a towering figure in a black robe, comes to visit four children whose grandmother is quite ill.  The children, fearing the worst, try different ways to distract him.  Death realizes how frightened the children are and so he tells them an allegorical story about two brothers, Grief and Sorrow and two sisters, Joy and Delight.  They meet and fall in love and spend a long happy life together.  When it comes time to die, they do so on the same day.  As it is with life and death, they cannot exist without each other.   This picture book can be used with children in times of loss.  It was first published in Denmark in 2001.  Recommended for ages 4-8.

  • This biography of Columbus's own Jack Hanna has great photographs and simple text for younger children. If you're planning a trip to the zoo, be sure to check this biography out before you go! Recommended for PreK-2nd grade.

  • Valentine's day is coming up, and if your family likes to create homemade gifts and cards it's time to get started!  This Usbourne Activities book is full of creative ideas for that little artist in your home.
