4yrs.-8yrs.
The story about Josh and his friend Tim dealing with the losses that young children inevitably face from the loss of a beloved pet to the death of a grandparent. ( )
  Fran01 | Mar 3, 2013 |
This book discusses the death of a pet, often the first death children have to deal with. It is written specifically in order to help children learn about death, and to help adults aid a child's passage through the grief process. Joshua's puppy is run over by a neighbour. This is worth noting as most pet deaths represented in books are as a result of old age. Joshua's growth from the loss comes from the learning of his special secrets: "When I love lots I hurt lots;" "My friends want to help. They just don't know how;" Everybody handles feelings in his own way;" "If you love somebody tell him now;" "I can help my friends when they hurt;" "GOOD memories always stay." It is more suitable for the over-sixes as it is more a text on grief than on the realities of death.
