Bought for three and a half year old prior to pet having to be put to sleep. Very helpful explanation. Child is now five years old and pulls this book our from time to time as child continues to develop they have new questions. It's reassuring as a parent that they can pull this book out as a prompt to me that they have more questions. I read the book myself first and cried. Might be useful to read a few times first so that you are confident in reading it with a child. I am still a little testy reading it with child, but this facilitated discussion that being sad is appropriate and things that can help with sad feelings

"I'll be good".

Damn right.

My daughter recently struggled with the sudden deterioration and death of her great grandmother. This explained, gently, the path to old age and then inevitable desth of Badger and highlighted taking the positives from his life for his friends to remember him. My daughter (age 4) found this very useful.

I used this with my Year 4 class in the literacy topic 'Stories with dilemas'. It really helped the children understand the topic and generated a lot of discussion. Sadly a few weeks before we looked at the book I lost my dad to a sudden illness and I have to say that the book helped me deliver the topic and helped the children understand what I had been through. It is a heart warming book.
