Grief and Books
Hi, brand new to the forum. Name is Shawna. In early may my sister and baby niece died.

Most of my immediate family and I are atheist.

Do you know of any grief/loss books that do not have a overtly religious message intertwined with every sentence?

Sorry for your loss.

Unfortunately I don't know of any such books. However a google for "atheist grief" turns up many blog posts, including this one. It might be somewhat what you're looking for.

Welcome to the forum.

I am terribly sorry for your family's losses.

Check out the link morongod entered. Other Google searches or even Amazon searches may come up with others. Amazon will also show you a list of similar books so it can be a good resource.

There is a simple one that is good to read for both kids and adults -

http://www.amazon.com/dp/0961519762

Then there is this one: http://www.amazon.com/Godless-Grief-Athe...eist+grief

I have seen the first one and it's a playful picture book like a kids story book - but it also has a reference section with a lot of good info on how to deal with grief. I would recommend it.

I haven't seen the second one... But it appears to be what you are looking for.
