My Thoughts:
Balloons for Tiger is written by Lori Orlinsky. This book is geared toward children ages 3-7. I read this with my 8 and 9 year old sons and we enjoyed it very much. This book is written in a way that children can understand and cope with a loss of a beloved pet. We have two dogs. Theodore Roosevelt who is a 6 month old German Shepherd and Amelia Earhart who is a 2 year old lab mix. (If you are not familiar with me - I am a history nerd. I have a Masters in Military History) My 8 year old had a lot of questions about how pets can pass - where they go and this book really helped break it down. 
The illustrations are beautiful and fun. They contain bright colors and kept all of our attention. This is a must read for children who may be facing the loss of pets. 
I received this book through the IRead book tour program - all thoughts are my own.
