Reviews - What do customers think about When a Pet Dies?
For the VERY youmg Sep 24, 2007
I purchased this for two young friends, boys: 6 and 10
This book was way too immature for the ten year old and even the six year old lost interest in it. I purchased other books on the subject of losing a pet to death that the kids read with more interest.
I would recommend this only for children under five.
Mr Rogers' book, "When a Pet Dies" Sep 9, 2007
"When a Pet Dies" is a book intended to help children understand and cope with the death of a favorite pet. I believe it does. Well illustrated with to the point photos, it gives the joy of having a pet and the sorrow of having one die. It allows the child to realize that each person is unique, and may have their own way of expressing their grief and their own way of recovering from that grief.
As a near 75 year old man, I bought the book to see how Mr Rogers handled this subject and he did extremely well. I can remember some of the pets that I have had over the years and even the ones that i knew and had 65 years ago still have a place in my being.
"When a pet dies, we can grow to know that the love we shred is still alive in us and always will be.", is the concluding sentence of the book and is a great one because it is always true.
Excellent Aug 13, 2007
I purchased this book because both my dogs are getting quite old, and both have had mini-strokes in the past few months. I have two small grandchildren and I know when the time comes they will be upset and confused. They don't have any pets of their own yet so they have no experience of death or loss. This book it very informative and gentle and I believe will help me to help them understand.
A must have for every Vet Practice Feb 11, 2007
This is an excellent book to give to famalies that have just lost a pet and have young children in the family. It helps the Mother &/or Father explain to the younger members why the circle of life happens. It helps to explain the pain, the anger and then healing. I think that it also helps the parents too - it builds a foundation of communication and trust. I highly recommend this publication.
I Found This Very Helpful for Myself Aug 6, 2001
I'm 22 and I still find comfort in reading this book when I think of lost ones. This book is not just for kids!
