The Tenth Good Thing About Barney

"My cat Barney died this Friday. I was very sad. My mother said we could have a funeral for him, and I should think of ten good things about Barney so I could tell them..."

But the small boy who loved Barney can only think of nine. Later, while talking with his father, he discovers the tenth -- and begins to understand.

This book discusses the loss of a favorite pet and the sadness you feel when the pet is no longer with you. Coming up with a list of all the things you loved about that pet can help to reduce sadness iand help to see the value that pet  brought to your life.  A pet is part of your family and that relationship is between a child and his/her pet can be strong.

As a bereavement counselor, Bobby’s Books has become my most utilized resource. I share this with other clinicians on a regular basis. Thank you for the work that you continue to do to get this resource out and into the community and most importantly into the minds and hearts of those that benefit from the healing.
