Dennison, Amy. Publication Information.

David Short Dennison Jr. (July 29, 1918 – September 21, 2001) was an American politician of the Republican party who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1957 to 1959. Dennison was born at Poland, Mahoning County, Ohio on July 29, 1918, and graduated from Western Reserve Academy, Hudson, Ohio, in 1936.

The Dennisons were an English Merseybeat band, that emerged from the Liverpool scene in the early 1960s. Despite their background, and a couple of minor hit singles, they failed to achieve more than a local following and were unable to find a footing on the British Invasion. However, in 1963, Bob Wooler stated that "The Dennisons have created the biggest impact in Liverpool since the Beatles".

"This is a journal about what happened to us. One night, Dad just died and that was that." Twins Allie and Amy were eight years old and their brother David was four when their beloved father died in his sleep. Encouraged and guided by their mother, the three children kept a journal for almost two years. They wrote about the night he died, the funeral, the first week, the first year, the cemetery, their thoughts and feelings, their sadness and griefand the future. Later, they looked back on what they had written and added new reflections. They also wrote suggestions for other kids who have experienced a similar loss. We were all deeply moved when we read this book. You will be, too. And, like us, youll be amazed at the strength and wisdom of Amy, Allie, and Davidreal children whose lives were abruptly and forever changed, and who chose to share their pain and learning with others. Recommended for anyone who has lost a loved one or knows someone who has.

bought it for my girls n its real
So sad that this book seems out of print. It's a great book that addressed many issues of grief and mourning. I think the authors do a particularly good job of describing the way that well meaning adults miss the mark when trying to help kids with death. I'd strongly recommend this book to any family with kids who have experienced the loss of a parent, or even a close friend or other family member. I hope is will become more available as it is a real gift. I bought it for my step-daughter who lost her mother.
Great book for grades 4-8.

You Are Not Alone: Teens Talk About Life After The Loss of a Parent, Lynn Hughes
Mitars Riders
Death of a loved one is always difficult. However, experiencing the death of a parent as a child is not only difficult, it can also be quite confusing. For most children, the idea of death is a surreal concept, often void of context and reality. Additionally, the manner in which most family and friends behave towards children (after they have lost their parent) can be equally as confusing.
Our Dad Died: The True Story of Three Kids Whose Lives Changed, approaches the death of a parent in a new way. Instead of advice from a noted expert, we get a story from three siblings who kept journals after their dad's death. This unique approach to teaching children about death is refreshing. Especially since it came from those who actually experienced it, instead of from experts who have only observed it.
The young writers invite the reader into their world. A world of hurt, anger, laughter, and annoyance. The book is written for both children and adults. Children will be able to relate to the style and content of their writing, while adults will quickly pick up on the undertones of their experiences. The three young writers take the reader from the beginning of their dad's death, onto his funeral and burial, and then through the two following years after his death. They also recap moments with their family, including a chapter dedicated solely to their grandparents.
David, one of the child authors, offers a glimpse of what it was like to go to his dad's funeral:
"It was hard to believe that Dad was in the coffin in the front of the chapel. The cover was closed so we couldn't see him. But I knew he was right there. I asked Mom if we could open it and just give him one last hug and kiss, but we couldn't. She said that his body didn't look the same without his soul, which was really the Dad part of him. His soul was already in heaven, and the body was empty and not Dad anymore. I wasn't sure about all that."
One of the best parts of the book, called "Looking Back," comes at the end of each chapter. Each one is written as an afterthought to the authors' original journal entries. They summarize and compare the events and feelings that ended up being really important, and also the ones that weren't. They also take the time to reassure young readers that their wide range of feelings and reactions are neither right or wrong, but are simply normal (under the circumstances).
Our Dad Died will help adults understand the minds and emotions of children who have lost a loved one, and will help children better grieve the loss of their parent.
