Sally Goes to Heaven is a wonderful, joyous book to help provide gentle insight into the natural cycle of life of a pet, or to share with young children who have recently experienced the loss of a beloved animal. In this book, Sally passes away and goes to heaven, where she lives happily and helps her family on Earth find a new pet. The book includes a removable magnetic photo frame that readers can use to hold a picture of their own beloved pet. Praise for Sally Goes to Heaven“Any family who has ever loved and lost a dog will find comfort in Sally Goes to Heaven. Stephen Huneck’s beautiful illustrations and simple text evoke an afterlife that is everything we could hope for our dogs—and ourselves.” —Ken Foster, author of The Dogs Who Found Me and I’m a Good Dog"The final entry in the late Huneck’s series about Sally the black Labrador is a touching account of Sally’s death from old age and her joyous experiences in heaven."--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW"Huneck’s instantly recognizable woodcuts make each scene feel iconic, and his plainspoken prose will provide grieving young pet-owners with a measure of relief."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW"This title can help children remember the good times in both Sally’s or their own pet’s life."--School Library Journal"The folk art–style woodblock illustrations, in their directness and simplicity, are as comforting as the text."--Booklist
