Blake the Brontosaurus & Timmy the Boy The Mrs. Pea Childrens Book Series (Book 2) Let's Talk About How Friends Can Help Process Grief ISBN: 0-9788417-5-1
Blake the Brontosaurus is taller than any of his play friends. Sometimes being so tall makes Blake feel out of place and lonely. Until the day his friend Timmy makes a wonderful observation. Blake is able to pop his head through the clouds and see heaven!
Together, Blake and Timmy build lasting friendships as they help playmates who've lost loved ones understand that new beginnings are possible with positive perspectives and the support of true friends. This story was created for children who are coping with the grief and sadness that accompanies losing a loved one and confusion about the notion of heaven.
Inspired to write this story after her eldest son asked, 'What would it be like for a dinosaur to live today?' coupled with the tragic loss of a family member, author and illustrator Kat Parrish sheds light on the notion of heaven through the story of a modern day dinosaur and the boy who believed in him.
This story of friendship carries with it a message of faith and unbreakable bonds - aspects of life that transcend loss.
