The Day Tiger Rose Said Goodbye

No reviews
Not since <i>The 10th Good Thing About Barney</i> or <i>I'll Always Love You</i> has there been such a peaceful and inspiring book to help children and adults cope with the loss of a pet. The talented multiple-medalist Jane Yolen takes on this difficult subject with her usual grace and poetic sensitivity, focusing not on the <i>death</i> as much as the <i>life</i> in the last day of an older cat named Tiger Rose. Tiger Rose's kitten days are long gone and she's grown too tired to stay, so she says her goodbyes to all the creatures and the joys of her natural world-from the scolding blue jay, to the dog and children she shares her home with, to a chipmunk, startled by her gentleness, to her favorite shady patch under a piney bush. In a final vision, Tiger Rose takes one last leap into the blue sky and becomes one with all-the earth, the air, the sun. . . . This is perhaps the most reassuring book on death available for children.
