Condición del libro: Very Good
When children suffer the loss of a beloved pet, adults often feel powerless to help them heal - especially when the adults themselves are grieving. "Forever Friend" is a beautifully designed and produced activity book offering a loving, creative and healthy way for kids 4-14 to cope with the loss of a pet. Through carefully structured activities like gathering photos, drawing pictures, planning a memorial service and even writing a special song for their pet, the author gently walks children and 'tweens' through what is often their first experience with death and loss. Page by page, as children work through their grief, they also create a keepsake scrapbook that forever captures the happy times they shared with their special pet. "Forever Friend" makes a loving gift that enables children to find their own unique way to say goodbye.From the Publisher:
"Over the years as a veterinarian, I have been asked how to help children work through the loss of a family pet. In the small world of a child, a family pet occupies more of that world than we adults may understand. This book provides a tool to help our children work through what they may be feeling in the loss of a pet they cherished. The "doing" activity focus of the book provides a tactile venue to help spark heart to heart communication, which is essential in the healing process."

"In an age of communication by social media networks, Twitter, Facebook, and other non-physically connected devices, it is refreshing to find a means to help children deal with the pain of loss that is non-electronic and allows for multimedia expression of feelings in an interactive format. The use of drawings and activities illustrate more complex concepts such as projection, desensitization, grief, mourning, and guilt. For many children, the loss of a pet through death is the first encounter with the ending of a life. Yet many adults underestimate the feelings of loss. The Forever Friend activity book is an excellent tool to help children work through the stages of loss including remembering, ritual, and moving on."
~Mary Beth Williams, Ph.D., LCSW
"Susan Weaver has created the Rainbow Reach Series as a comprehensive tool for children to express thoughts and feelings involving death and loss. From pet loss, to worry, deployment and death, these interactive workbooks create the safe space for expression so needed for our bereaved girls and boys. Parents and professionals will assuredly benefit from using these resources to develop communication and sharing, and normalize a child's grief journey. The Rainbow Reach Series is a valuable tool for young people and adults to use in recognizing the multifaceted aspects of grieving, and for supporting outlooks for recovery and resilience that can be useful throughout a lifetime."

"Children heal best when they are engaged in activities that help them express and resolve difficult feelings. The Rainbow Reach Series provides such activities in a creative, interesting workbook format that will help children move beyond grief and anxiety."

"The Rainbow Reach Series is wonderful! I love the way that a child's creativity is utilized in indentifying emotions and focusing on blessings. The books offer excellent yet simple text and drive the lessons of optimism, acceptance of feelings and resilience home in truly age-appropriate ways. Bravo!"

"As a licensed clinical psychologist, with several years of experience helping children with the issues contained in the Rainbow Reach Series, I would utilize this book in a child's therapy to help them learn how to express difficult thoughts and feelings. The book is colorful, engaging, and easy to use, and the activities will help children address the impact of life events in healthy ways."
~Lynn J. Piper, Ph.D., LCP
"The key to recovery from significant emotional loss is to express feelings in the moment you have them. Children are naturally superb at communicating what they feel when they feel it. The Rainbow Reach Series of books presents perfect guidelines for children to help them discover what they need and want to communicate about life-affecting events, in pictures and words. We heartily endorse these books - and heart is the most important element."
