Format: Hardcover
Judith Viorst has written a lovely and touching look at death from the perspective of a child. Though dealing with the death of a pet, it helps children deal with the reality of any death. I can't read it out loud without crying myself; but then, children need to know we feel sad sometimes, too, and it's okay.
This book does not have religious overtones, so it can be used by families with all different sets of beliefs. It addresses the feelings children have when faced by loss, and how we all deal with those feelings, learn from them, and grow.

The Tenth Good thing about Barney was such a wonderful book, when I was Little. I used to have the tape of it. Barney was a cat and he died last friday. Mother consoled the small boy who loved Barney, by encouraging him to think of ten good things about him. But the boy that loved Barney could only think of nine. So after the funeral, he thought of the tenth good thing, which was that Barney was helping to grow a flower. Mom bought me a copy of this book after my pet fish Frank died. And then we later bought an identical copy after my cousin's pet dog Cindy died. I hope they continue to make it.

We bought this for our daughters (3 and 5) when we learned we were going to lose one of our cats. We read it to them after we broke the news that he had to be put to sleep. We're not religious so didn't want a story about cat spirits watching over us- this book mentions heaven but leaves it open for the reader to decide. In the story, the cat is buried in the garden and helps the flowers to grow.

The story encouraged my eldest to come up with some ways to remember our cat which helped her to come to terms with our loss. I highly recommend this beautiful story for anyone needing to explain the loss of a pet to young children.

I loved this book as a child and now find myself buying copies for friends with small children who are dealing with the death of a pet.... Timeless.
