picture book about grief

SUKI AND SAM

by Dr. Lisa Marotta

illustrated by Dorothy Shaw

36 pages

Sam loved to paint. Samantha also loved her dog Suki. Suki’s tongue was glossy pink and the tufts of fur by her ears were inky black. Samantha even loved Suki’s biscuit breath.

But one morning Suki doesn’t come when Sam calls her.

All the color drains out of Samantha’s world.


Dr. Lisa Marotta handles the topic of death with grace and compassion. The illustrations are tastefully executed, and not too graphic for the youngest of readers.
