As an elementary school counselor, I absolutely loved this one. It is so developmentally appropriate. As the story unfolds, each page has a little blurb teaching children about the grieving process. I've read 'technical' books like this before but this one is SOLID. This is also about the loss of a guinea pig. But I think whether you lose a dog or a cat this is a good one to do some teaching about grieving. I once asked a group of 3rd graders after a loss, "Have you ever heard of the word grief?" No one raised their hand. It's amazing how empowered and connected they felt as I guided them through the process. It would have been a missed opportunity for them to grow if I would have just swept the teaching piece under the rug. They have the desire to learn and be educated about grief. It's helpful for them to know what they are feeling is perfectly fine - even though it may be difficult.

Young or old, no matter what your age, nothing can really prepare you for the death of a pet. Good-Bye Jeepers: What to Expect When Your Pet Dies by Nancy Loewen is ideal in helping parents explain the death of a pet to their children. Good-Bye Jeepers is a story about a boy (panda bear) who one day discovers his pet guinea pig, Jeepers, is rolled up into a ball in his cage, unresponsive. His parents explain to him what he already knows - that Jeepers has died. The story goes into the activities and feelings the boy experiences the day his pet passes away. Small boxes at the bottom of some of the pages gently explain to the reader the many different emotions that are a perfectly normal part of the grieving process. The simple, colorful illustrations by Christopher Lyles are a nice addition to the story. Losing a pet is such an important and sensitive subject, and I'm so glad there is a book like this to help a child get through it.
