Summary, etc.:
Having and taking care of a pet is a special part of life. Pets often bring us joy when we're happy and comfort when we're sad. Unfortunately, no matter how well we take care of our pets, like all living things, they'll eventually die. The death of a pet hurts, but it's something all pet owners experience. This book offers gentle explanations of tough concepts such as euthanasia and cremation to help a child understand a pet's passing. It also discusses the reasons a pet might die and offers constructive methods to help children deal with their grief.
