Pets grow old, just like people, but kids often are not prepared when their beloved animal passes. These books from our friends at Common Sense Media can help make it easier for kids to cope after the death of their pet.
Many kids experience serious loss for the first time when a pet dies. Books that deal with this sad event can help prepare them and make it easier for them to process their feelings. These compelling stories can even help kids cope with the death of a family member or friend.
