Someone Came Before You


A story for a child who came after a child who died in a family. It shows how the parents grieved and “stretched their hearts” to welcome another child, who is the focus of the book. Gently and appropriately handled.


This book addresses the surviving child of a family that has suffered a miscarriage or stillbirth. Recommended by age level two and up, Someone Came Before You tells the story of losing a child in plain terms and illustrations, and then offers very practical advice to parents concerned with how to tell a child about the sibling that came before them.
