This book is a beautiful and moving allegory of loss and coping, and is particularly poignant for children who may be dealing with death and grief for the first time.
This version of Super Dog Zam targets the 6-9 year age group to aid in your family’s grief journey. In this edition, we aim to provide an introduction to the concepts of death and grief in a relatable, uplifting story, followed by a workbook including age-appropriate questions to guide children through their own thoughts and feelings about the subject.
The Super Dog Zam Grief Healing Books were created to offer families with grieving children a self-help tool that could be used at home to help young hearts and minds through the difficult grieving process. By using these books, adult friends and family of grieving children have an opportunity to take responsibility and action towards healing, rather than becoming frustrated by the lack of information and support so often encountered by families facing grief.
Super Dog Zam Grief Healing Books are part of an ambitious initiative by the Grief Heroes Foundation to become a lifeline in grief and close the gap of loneliness for children, teenagers, and their families. The foundation aims to reduce the stigma often associated with discussing death and grief in conjunction with schools and hospitals through educational programs and donations.
