Description

When Tommy’s dog, Paddy, dies, Tommy is sad. He doesn’t want another dog. He just wants Paddy. Then an angel visits Tommy. The angel reminds Tommy that he was a great dog owner, and that Paddy loved him very much – as much as Tommy loved Paddy. Tommy finds that his heart can hold even more than his enormous love for Paddy. This gentle and honest look at the loss of a loved one ends with “I wonder” questions for children, and a section for adults on talking to children about loss.
