The death of a pet is hard on a family in many ways, but perhaps hardest on children who don’t yet understand the concept of death.  Wake County Public Libraries own a number of picture book titles to help families explore their grief and learn to deal with the death of a beloved furry friend.  Our book list, Goodbye, Dear Pet, will help connect families with books to help during a difficult time.

For more picture book lists on tough topics, visit our website.
