Sad but helpful


A lovely way to explain how to deal with loss to someone. I think that it could even benefit the adult whom is reading the story to the child.





This touching story is a gorgeous way to deal with the difficult topic of grief and loss. The story deals with death of a loved pet but a nice story with strategies to deal with grief and make/remember memories. Wonderful lifelike illustrations.
