Where Lily Isn’t by Julie Paschkis and Margaret Chodos-Irvine - ADVISABLE

Where Lily Isn’t by Julie Paschkis, illustrated by Margaret Chodos-Irvine. PICTURE BOOK. Godwin Books (Macmillan), 2020. $18. 9781250184252



A young girl remembers all of places her beloved dog Lily isn’t as she mourns her pet’s death.

There are definitely some good books about holding a funeral for a pet which has died, but this is the first one that I can remember about the mourning process.  Combine this with Paws + Edward by Espen Dekko and The End of Something Wonderful by Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic for a complete look at pets. I would read them together though – not just hand the to a child, because that is quite heavt reading with them all together.
