12 Children's Books That Help Explain Tragedies and Death

11 of 13
children's books explaining death or grief, Only One You

Only One You by Linda Kranz


This book doesn't deal with death or tragedy at all, but it is uplifting any day of the week. It shows that kids can be proud of the fact that there is "only one you." They should feel empowered to be themselves, feel their own feelings, make friends, create their own artwork, and live a life that is theirs. When children wonder what will happen to them or someone else when they die, they can keep in mind that every individual makes their mark on the world in their own way. No one else will ever get to be "you," and that makes "you" so great.
