A Sky of Diamonds: A Story for Children About Loss, Grief and Hope

by Camille Gibbs

A storybook with in-built strategies to help children cope with the death of a loved one

Dealing sensitively with the loss of a mother, A Sky of Diamonds addresses the range of emotions that a child can feel on the loss of someone special – anger, guilt, fear – as well as the way people can have good and bad days on their journey through grief. Most importantly, it touches upon the idea that its okay to have happy moments again as time passes.

In the story Mia and her father explore the many different ways in which to express their feelings, including punching and throwing things (safely), writing questions on stones and sending them into the sea, and sharing happy memories of Mia’s mother. It offers not only a way to access a child’s grief, but also gives some strategies for parents and children seeking to understand the death of a dearly loved one.
