No matter what your age, losing a pet is hard. We have two beloved and elderly cats, one of whom has a serious chronic illness that requires daily pills and needles. My five- and eight-year-old daughters know the sad truth about our kitty, and they wanted to help make this experience a bit easier for other kids. So they bravely chose to read twenty-two books about pet loss with me so that, together, we could select the best ones for other parents to read with their children. Little ones may not understand what it even means to die, or why it must happen. These stories start with the clear facts, introduced with compassion. This lyrical, poetic picture book is not at all scary or particularly sad.

When a pet dies, the right children's book can help kids deal with the death of a pet. It may be a book about dog heaven, a book about what happens when a cat dies, a special day for a dying dog or a burial for a beloved pet mouse. Sharing a children's picture book about the death of a pet can provide an opportunity for children to express their feelings when a beloved pet dies. Dog Heaven , an affectionate and joyous look at what heaven must be like for dogs, can be a great comfort for both children and adults who believe in a heaven as a place where dogs go. When our dog died, I bought this children's picture book, which was written and illustrated by Cynthia Rylant, for my husband and it helped to ease his grief. Scholastic,
