The way we teach our children to deal with it is what matters.

In “Our Book about Bugs: (A True Story)” (published by LifeRich Publishing), authors Amanda M. Moomey and Lisa Buskirk introduce the concept of death to young readers through the heartwarming story of a family and their pet.

Based on true events, “Our Book about Bugs” is both touching and educational. When a family adopts a white bunny named Frosty, they grow to love their new pet, who soon gives birth to a litter of bunnies. The children love playing with the new bunnies, especially a grey one named Bugs.

Later, Frosty dies, leaving the children confused and sad. The children soon learn that Frosty lives on through her children, which brings them comfort and allows them to love Bugs as much as they did Frosty.

Moomey hopes children will learn to find something positive in a sad situation. Additionally, parents may find “Our Story about Bugs” helpful when explaining the loss of a pet to their children.

“It is a fact of life that at one point or another, we must deal with the concept of death,” says Moomey. “The way we teach our children to deal with it is what matters.”
