Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
Leave it to a Californian to create a self-help books for kids. This book is part of the "Let's Make a Book About It" series by this publisher which deals with everything from surviving an earthquake, to qelling nightmares, and adjusting to moving. With a short introduction to parents about its intent and purpose, the book is mainly a scrapbook in which the child draws pictures and creates text dealing with his/her feelings of anger, sadness, or guilt following the death of a pet. While the intention is good-to help a child recognize and express their feelings-the book is a bit much as it goes on and on with various activities. Ideally, a parent could choose one or two. In the author's words, the book is intended to allow a child to express his/her true feelings, not tell them what they "ought to feel."
