Includes 10 Developmentally Appropriate Discussion Questions in the Back! It is difficult for children to express their feelings, especially when it comes to the sadness and confusion experienced due to the loss of a loved one.

Parents, teachers, and counselors can use this beautifully photographed book and its accompanying questions as a platform to open up discussion with a child about the grieving process. Children will relate to Maggie and Skittles, two happy-go-lucky dogs whose lives are suddenly changed when Maggie's friend Sammy dies and is buried by the old tree on the hill. Your child will join these two friends as they each explore the different stages of grief from two different perspectives: Maggie is sorrowful and mourns her loss daily at the old tree, while Skittles is at her wit's end about how to help Maggie through the grief -- until it is discovered that listening and love are the answers.
