My Pet Memory Book: To Help A Child Through The Loss Of Their Pet

 Author: S Wallace  Category: Children, Family, Great Gift, Journal, Pet Loss & Bereavement  Publisher: Independently published  : January 4, 2019  Language: English

Losing a pet is heartbreaking for all the family, but can be particularly difficult for a child. 

This book will help any child who is grieving for a family pet who has died. 

  • The book allows them to fill in all the information they like about their pet, and has plenty of room for pictures- either drawn or to stick in photographs.
  • The book will help the child recall happy memories about their time with their pet.
  • Parents can help the child fill the book in if needed.
  • Children can fill in as much or as little of the book as they like, and at their own pace.
  • Sections of the book include:
    • Me and My Pet
    • My Pet’s Favourite Things To Do
    • My Favourite Things To Do With My Pet
    • My Pet’s Favourite Food and Treats
    • The Silliest Things My Pet Did
    • The Naughtiest Things My Pet Did
    • Why My Pet Wouldn’t Want Me To Be Sad
  • Using the book will help the child as they grieve for their lost pet by helping them recall happy memories which they can record. The final section, Why My Pet Wouldn’t Want Me To Be Sad will prompt the child to think about why they don’t have to stay sad forever.

Children will be able to look at the book whenever they like in the future which makes it a lovely keepsake, and also reassures the child that the pet will never be forgotten. Makes a thoughtful gift for any child who has lost a pet.

The book is 7″ x 9″ in size, so large enough for a child to have plenty of room to write, but small enough to be stored or carried easily. The book has 22 prompted pages, giving plenty of scope for the child to write what they would like, but not so big that it overwhelms them. Each prompted page has a blank page behind- meaning no worrying about bleed through if they draw a picture, or giving extra room for writing or pictures. Please use the Look Inside function to ensure you are happy with the format and style of the book.
