Mellissa Little

Yesterday You Were Here
This touching, carefully sparse picture book for young readers aims to help young people dealing with the loss of a loved one to process and talk about their grief.

Praise for Yesterday You Were Here
'In sadness this book will be a kind friend.' - Michael O'Connell, AM, APM, Commissioner for Victims' Rights

'Loss is never easy and this is a thought provoking book, written in a simple way that makes it easy to read with children to help them understand loss.' - Karen Colliver, ReadPlus

Melissa Little tragically lost her young sons Koda (4) and Hunter (9 months) in early 2016. In the wake of her loss, she watched Koda’s young friends struggle to process what had happened. ‘Their bewilderment motivated me to write a book,’ says Melissa. ‘I hoped to give them an opportunity to think about their grief, and talk about it if they wanted. It is not intended to answer all the questions that may arise but simply to promote discussion – and maybe help a little.’
