children's books explaining death or grief, My Many Colored Days Dr. Seuss

My Many Colored Days by


In this abstract but relatable book, children learn about the range of human emotions through a series of colorful illustrations and snappy rhymes, like: "Some days are yellow. Some are blue. On different days, I'm different too." The colors and feelings are also associated with different animals, such as a "busy, buzzy bee" on yellow days and a horse kicking up its heels on red days. And some days are a mix of many different colors and moods — so true during times of grief.
