Death & Grief


This week on The Children’s Hour, we explore how kids cope with death and grief. Our Kids Crew interview our friends from the Children’s Grief Center of New Mexico, children’s book Evan & The Skygoats author Vanessa Vassar,  and death educator Gail Rubin. Plus we hear from Sage and Sky about the death their beloved dog, Sumi. We’ll learn what are the best things to say to someone in mourning, and what we absolutely should never say. Find out the history of Halloween and Day of the Dead, and how you can memorialize someone you love.
