Helping children handle grief and loss.
Henry the hedgehog loved his pet ladybug named Lila. But after a school visit where Henry and Lila met Henry’s classmates and their pets, Lila’s spots began to fade and she passed away. Henry’s friends still had their pets, so Henry felt very alone in his grief.
His parents told him to share his feelings with God and others and that it’s okay to cry. Psalm 56:8 is used as the basis for Henry’s healing, knowing God cared about him and his sadness. When Henry shares his feelings with his friends, he finds more relief and comfort.
This is a nice Christian children’s story that will help little ones cope with the loss of a pet. It can also be used in the event of any loss where a child would feel alone in his or her grief.
Full-page illustrations by Joe Hox are fitting and adorable. Henry Says Good-Bye is part of the Good News for Little Hearts Series.
