How can young ones start to heal after the loss of a pet? Balloons for Tiger demonstrates how a creative and whimsical story can bring clarity and hope to this difficult subject. We see multicolored balloons traverse the globe, moving from the hands of young kids in order to reach their much-loved cat who has moved on. This story allows children to experience a fun journey around the world while also helping them deal with complex emotions. As they watch the balloons make their way to the other side of the rainbow bridge, the young characters are able to deal with their feelings in a helpful, encouraging way. Balloons for Tiger is the perfect book for any child who has dealt with the loss of someone special.
