Bubbles In Heaven by Chandra A. Clements

⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5 Star Review!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope everyone is doing well! I know it has been a few weeks since our last book review but life has hit us pretty hard. We lost our sweet dog Mama and decided to take some time to rest and heal. We were given the opportunity to read a very sweet book by the Author Chandra A. Clements and it came at the right time. The book entitled "Bubbles in Heaven" is a book about the loss of a pet and the feelings that come with such a sad time in a child's life. Each page is filled with beautiful art work drawn by the Author's two children. The rhyming words and pages are put together in such a way it is easy to tell it was written from the heart of the writer. I was worried at first that the basis of the story would make my son upset but as we continued to read I noticed that he was not sad at all. The story helped him understand that this happens to different types of pets and families. He began to understand that this loss was not just his own but many others have felt the same pain. The knowledge that he was not alone in his tears gave him a tremendous amount of comfort. I was very pleased with this reaction and very relieved. It can be hard to express to your child when they lose a pet or a loved one that they are loved from beyond. This book does a wonderful job at addressing the issue of communication between a pet and a child. The author used bubbles as a way for the child and the pet to communicate. 

I find the idea of using bubbles to float up to heaven to deliver a message to be EXTREMELY clever and useful in allowing the children to speak freely to their beloved pets. When losing a best friend like a pet, it is very important for children to be open about their feelings. Allowing them to use bubbles to talk to their pet can help them with the grieving process. My son and I really loved this book and plan to get our own set of bubbles. We plan to have many conversations to our sweet Mama dog and will get our own bubbles to deliver the messages to her for us. The book did have a few big words and concepts for a child under the age of 6 to understand but it was not too distracting to take away from the story.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who has experienced the loss of a pet with their children. This book can be used as a wonderful tool to help a child grieve and honor their beloved pet. Well done to the Author and Mom who wrote this book with her two children. Thank you for thinking of all of the other children who may be going through the same hard time. We will honor our sweet Mama dog this weekend with bubbles. 

A huge thank you to the Author and her sweet children for creating this beautiful book!
