Review of Sammy in the Sky

image

Sammy in the Sky by Barbara Walsh, illustrated by Jamie Wyeth.

I bought this at the Wyeth exhibit at Crystal Bridges on the day of my baby shower.

It is beautifully illustrated by a world-renowned painter. Emotive.

The story is poignant and sad and I would highly recommend it for anyone who has children who have lost a pet recently. Or any adult, really. It is comforting without any religious bent. At the end, you will smile.

Five of five stars.
