When a close friend or family member dies, it can be difficult for children to express their feelings. I Miss You helps boys and girls understand that death is a natural complement to life, and that grief and a sense of loss are normal feelings for them to have following a loved one's death. Titles in the sensitively presented A First Look At series explore the dynamics of various relationships experienced by children of preschool through early school age. Kids are encouraged to understand personal feelings and social problems as a first step in dealing with them. Written by psychotherapist and counselor Pat Thomas, these books promote positive interaction among children, parents, and teachers. The story lines are simple and direct--easily accessible to younger children. There are full-color illustrations on every page.

This book is a useful resource as a starting point. It does not follow a story or a narrator, but instead approaches death as a discussion. I felt like this book had three parts: the first, in explaining the idea of death. How death happens, what it looks like, how it's portrayed in media versus real life, etc. The second part dealt more with grief, what it looks like, how it can feel, and how it changes from person to person. The third part, the very back of the book, has a helpful guide for parents, caregivers, and family members as they try to teach young children about death. The author, Pat Thomas, has included several resources and tips for teaching children about death.
