Rosie and Crayon

(3) K-3 After her dog Crayon's death, Rosie finds everything "cold" and "colorless." Searching for a missing kitten draws Rosie out of her gray world; she allows herself to remember Crayon--in glorious color--and open her heart to new friends. With honesty, warmth, and a little humor, this gentle story celebrates a child's love for a pet while honoring the difficult (possibly first) experience of grieving.
