Kate, the Ghost Dog Coping with the Death of a Pet by Wayne L. Wilson


Kate, the Ghost Dog Coping with the Death of a Pet by Wayne L. Wilson

This is a sensitive, beautifully written book designed to help young people cope with their grief over the death of a pet. It is filled with both poignancy and humor - a combination that really 'hooks' readers of all ages. It deals specifically with the loss of a dog, but acknowledges that grief can accompany the loss of any pet. It takes seriously the emotional depth of grief.
