The Day Scooter Died

A Book About the Death of a Pet

by Kathleen Long Bostrom, illustrated by Cheri Bladholm


Price: £4.99
Publisher:Zonderkidz from Zondervan
Scooter had belonged to Mum and Dad, but when Mikey was born Scooter changed his allegiance and attached himself like a limpet to Mikey. As Mikey grew up they played together and one day while playing ball in the garden (yard) the ball went too far and Scooter chased after it, out of the garden, into the path of an oncoming car. He died very shortly after and all Mikey was left with was Scooterís beloved blanket, which he treasures along with Scooterís collar, rubber bone and name tag and a ball that Scooter had so loved to chase. His Mother explained that all creation was in Godís care and that although we do not know if there are animals in heaven, we can trust God to know what is best for the animals he loves.
Donít forget to look at the guidance and advice to adults on the back pages.
