"Bubbles for Poppo is the fourth book in a series written by Annie MacDonald to help children cope with the failing health and death of a loved one. As with the previous three books in the series, What's up with Poppo?, Poppo's Half-Birthday Wish, and Poppo's Very Best Trick, this book is beautifully illustrated and written in a way that deals with the issue of death honestly and directly but yet is comforting and hopeful. In this book, Jenny, the delightful little girl who has lost her beloved grandfather, is still emotionally processing the loss six months later. She remembers him fondly and misses him terribly. Jenny's parents allow her to talk about him and his death freely. They encourage her to express her feelings openly. Their answers to her many questions are simple but honest. These conversations provide a positive model for parents to help their own children in the grief process. Often parents don't know what to say to their children or how to answer the questions that children naturally have about death. This book is a good place to start that conversation. Bubbles for Poppo also includes a generic spiritual framework for children to deal with death. And, in addition, to including the ritual of a visit to the cemetery, Jenny creates her own rituals that help her remember her Poppo and comfort her in her loss. Both the spiritual aspect and the rituals are important, effective methods of helping children grieve. The book ends on a positive, hopeful note as Jenny once again finds Poppo in her heart.

Annie MacDonald has created another book that would be a valuable resource for anyone helping children cope with death and loss. As a professional, I would recommend it to any helping professional working with children who have suffered a loss. As a parent, not only would I recommend it to any parent or grandparent, I would use it with my own children. Nicely done, Annie, once again!"  Terry Raposo, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist
