This is a story about a young girl named Lee, who loves her little black dog, Prince. But one day, Prince is suddenly killed by a speeding car. The girl not only has to come to grips with the abrupt loss of her dog, but she also manages questions like “Who was it? Why didn’t they stop? How could they do it?” The ultimate message from her loving parents is this: We love you. It is OK to be sad. We are holding you. And we will do everything we can to prevent this from happening again.
This story is good for working through the feelings and emotions surrounding a sudden loss or crisis.
