The Day We Lost Pet

by Chuck Young Author and Aniela Sobieski Illustrator

Part creation myth, part fairy tale, The Day We Lost Pet provides kids and their adults a unique, nonreligious way to discuss death and grief with the story of a balloon family's loss of their beloved Pet. These endearing balloon characters harness the language of poetry, science, and nature in order to understand some of life’s most difficult moments. For anyone who has lost a beloved pet family member, this is an imaginative resource to help with explaining loss and the feelings of grief.
