The American Psychological Association describes the grieving process as important for overcoming sadness that comes after a loved one passes away. Susan Lynn Bishop knows how loss can be painful, so much so with children who may not be equipped to process the pain. Her book, “Eenie Meanie Me and The Very Sad Day” (published by AuthorHouse), was written to gently guide readers, especially young ones, through the sensitive process of grief and loss.

This touching storybook follows the thoughts and experiences of a little girl named Eenie who struggles to understand why her grandmother, Nonnie, passed away. She goes on a journey to find answers about death. Inspired by Bishop’s experiences of losing her own grandmother, this storybook discusses loss and, more importantly, love using an approach that is easy for children to understand.

“My book is written out of love and it rhymes for an easy read for parents to read aloud,” the author says. “It explains that the love of a grandparent is always there.”

Accompanied by original illustrations by Mary Lou Brown, “Eenie Meanie Me and The Very Sad Day” offers grief-counseling for all ages.
