As a licensed therapist and school counselor, Freeda the Frog Books are a breath of fresh air. They help children with grief and loss by being stories that are relatable. One book in particular that I enjoy is Freeda the Frog Gets a Divorce. It has been such a wonderful experience reading these with my younger children and helps to normalize the feelings related to separation. I highly recommend this entire series to educators, parents and mental health professionals.
