How can children begin to heal after losing a pet? Balloons for Tiger takes an imaginative look at this tough topic as colorful balloons travel from the hands of children to their beloved cat who has passed on. This book lets children open up their hearts and imaginations for a magical journey to the farthest corners of the world, where they'll meet skydivers, astronauts, superheroes, and everything in between. As they watch the balloons voyage to the other side of the rainbow bridge, they learn to positively process their grief. Balloons for Tiger is a great tool for any child who has experienced the loss of a pet- or any other loved one, too.
Balloons for Tiger is a sweet and unique hardcover book for children who might be coping with the loss of a pet. Its rhyming text reveals the journey of released balloons on their way to a beloved pet cat, Tiger. This tale allows children to process their grief in a soothing and healing way.
Without delving deep into the painful loss, this imaginative and sensitive rhyming journey encourages children to manage their grief with creativity and reflection.
The full-page illustrations are colorful and cute, and helpful discussion questions and strategies are included in the back of the book to help educators and parents talk to children about their feelings.
