PrintCompanion Press announces the publication of a new coloring book for young children grieving the death of a pet. Entitled My Pet Died, the coloring book is authored by renowned grief educator Dr. Alan Wolfelt.

The 24-page coloring book provides pages for kids to draw or paste a photo of their pet and, with a grown-up’s help, write the pet’s name and a few simple words about the pet. It also includes colorable drawings of children playing with pets of all kinds and depicts the many normal and natural feelings grieving kids experience. The coloring book also includes a note to parents and other caregivers with general guidance about helping children after the death of a pet.

The author of Healing A Child’s Grieving Heart and many other books for and about grieving children and teens, Dr. Wolfelt is committed to helping people young and old mourn well so they can live well and love well.
