Rated 5 out of 5 by from New hope after losing a pet bunny Have you ever lost a beloved pet? The big hole it leaves in your heart convinces you that you never want another pet again? How could a new one be as wonderful as your last one? The pain and grief you carry each and every day is very hard to bear. Timothy discovers his beautiful rabbit, Blossom, not breathing in her cage one day and finds it so hard to accept the fact that she is gone from his life forever. His parents want to get another rabbit to replace her but Timothy's heart is still hurting and raw from the loss of sweet Blossom and doesn't want another bunny in his life. Saying goodbye and letting go of a cherished pet is very hard to do indeed. Then one morning Timothy opens his door and finds a little brown bunny outside wanting to come inside. He tries many ways to discourage it and tries to chase it away. He is still adamant he does not want another rabbit. The persistent little bunny through a stroke of luck hops right through the door and you know where it eventually lands? Yep, right into Timothy's heart. This heartwarming book is a perfect way to discuss with your child about the caring and letting go of a dear family member .... the family pet. I highly recommend this book.
