MY TURN by Derrick Peeples
This is a charming book about the circle of life – for dogs. The book was inspired by the loss of the author’s AKITA-Shepherd mix dog, named CLEO. The book is a picture book telling the story of dogs.
The story starts in Heaven where seven golden transports are waiting to leave heaven to deliver the new animals to their parents. Milo, a dog, is one of the unborn waiting for a chance to experience life. Milo watches as an angel commands the transports to “GO!” As the transports leave Heaven for Earth, Milo asks the angel, “When is it going to be MY Turn?” The book follows Milo’s journey through a wonderful dog life until he is transported back to heaven.
The goal of the book is to help families and children understand and cope with pet loss. To encourage them to savor every moment with their pets and appreciate the time that they have together.
This is a picture book with hand drawn illustrations that give the book special significance. Find My Turn by Derrick Peeples on Amazon.com.
