2.5 - This is a hard one for me to rate and review. The second I saw the cover I knew I'd be reading it with Julia. The next second when I read the title I knew that it would mean something to the both of us. I assumed, incorrectly, that this was going to deal with the death of a dog who got sick with cancer. (If anyone knows of a book like this I'd appreciate the recommendation.)

4.25 stars My co-worker and friend has breast cancer. It is horrible. I have heard about cancer treatment but until she was sick I didn't know much about the day to day highs and lows. This book made me well up with tears.I was trying not to cry. But it simply talks about cancer, treatment and all the good days and bad days. It help me understand cancer a little better. It has been hard to watch my dog lose her hair and be so tired and sick. AWFUL! Nicely done!

I related to this story becaus emy mother died three years ago from cancer. Even though it's different from a dog i can see how student scan relate to this story. This would be good for students are greiveing even if it's over s pet they lost too. I owuld place this book in my sfae place for students. I remember in my pre-k placement a little girl lost her mother and she was having a hard time understanding it. This book could have been read to her.

THis was a great book. It discusses the topic of cancer in animals and is a great way to open this topic with students if something unfortunate is going on with a student's pet or in a student's family. It also is a good book to read when discussing professions such as a veternarian.
