William Bridges' book Transitions was a lifesaver for me and I still refer to it often

All four of these books by Pema Chodron are perfect for helping navigate transitions.

All of Cheri Huber's books are handwritten and illustrated easy and fast reads that are profoundly helpful. When You Are Falling, Dive is perfect for transitions and not to be mistaken for another excellent book with the same title by Mark Matousek.
