Coping with cancer is difficult in children. They may experience much confusion, fear, and misunderstanding about the disease and its treatment.

The Do Bad Dogs Get Cancer? book is about helping children and young adults better understand what happens when a loved one, including their pet, is diagnosed with cancer. This book helps the reader identify with the emotions Turbo and Boxster are experiencing once Turbo is diagnosed with cancer; provides a better understanding of cancer treatments; and reassures that cancer is not contagious.

This book uses reassuring words as a means for parents to have an
open discussion and address children’s concerns in a child-friendly way.

Grief and loss are normal feelings to have when a relative, friend, or pet dies.

Don’t Say Good Bye Just Say See You! reassures a child that no matter how sad or angry they feel when they lose a relative, friend, or pet, in time their sadness will ease and they will be able to remember the happiness they shared.
This book gives parents an opportunity to talk about death with their grieving child by addressing their feelings of sadness, anger, and guilt, and clarify any misconceptions they may have.

Don’t Say Good Bye Just Say See You! brings a comforting perspective for children who are grieving the loss of their pet or loved one. Parents can use a pet that has died as a good reference point in the discussion of human death.
