Lee Nugan, author of The Song; The Transformational Power of Grief, has written a children’s book on grief titled Gee Bear and the Journey Through Sadness. Lee Nugan, a psychotherapist for over 30 years, wrote the books after working with many children and adults through the grieving process.
Gee Bear and the Journey Through Sadness is a beautifully illustrated book designed for children ages 3-11 and is a simple and powerful story that shows children that they will find joy again, even though someone they love has died. The story lets the child know that it is all right to feel sad, angry, lonely and confused, and also that it is important to express their feelings about the death. The child learns that they will feel the sadness, but they will also play again, laugh again, and go on with their lives. A child who reads this story will know that the love of the one who died will be with them forever. This book is written in a way that can reach a child on his or her own level. Even when parents and loved ones are trying their best, their words may not reach a child who is grieving.
The loneliness of grief, and the feeling of separation, can keep the child from healing, or can make the process of healing last much longer. This book is written with the hope that children who have suffered the loss of a loved one will not carry this pain forever.
The story is written from the perspective of a young girl’s teddy bear. It tells of the family’s journey of love, loss, and recovery. .
