Explores important issues in a clear and matter-of-fact way to appeal to young children.This reassuring picture book explores the issue of the death of a pet in gentle, simple terms. The death of a pet can be a child’s first experience of a loss of this kind. Some recover quite quickly and other take time to adjust. It’s important to see grief as a process not an event and let your child grieve in a way that is appropriate for their age and level of understanding.
This book provides opportunities to stop and talk about feelings and reactions to the death of a pet. The worries and questions surrounding this difficult experience are made accessible and approachable. Parent and teacher notes at the back of the book give advice for how to answer questions that might arise.
