Kaygan’s Adventures: Save Silly Millie! by Darcele Cole-Robinson

In this story we get a glimpse of a child who encounters the reality of death. My granddaughter lost her dog, Millie, who was her best friend. I wanted to help her heal by writing this story about her little friend, and to let her know how much Nana Darcele loves her.

As you read this book with your child, grandchild, or student, remember that this story might bring back memories for them. Feel free to talk about their memories, how they hurt, how they handled this hurt, and how friends are there to support each other during times like these.

Some children, when facing a difficult emotion or a trauma, will ask questions and wonder aloud about the characters in this book. Other children are content to just listen and take it all in.
