Sale! Good-Bye Skink $24.99 $19.99by Suzanne T. Saldarini; ORI Academic Press ISBN-13: 13: 978-1-942431-13-8 (soft, color)Something’s wrong at Acorn School! A favorite classroom pet, a small brown Skink will not move. And it will not eat its treats; not juicy strawberries, no crunchy cheerios, and not even fresh green lettuce. The Skink always stands up on its back legs, but not now. The children’s questions and their feelings are very clear. What happened to our pet? What should we do? What comes next? Together, these pre-school children with their honest and tactful teacher share many of the feelings and thoughts that come to all of us when confronted with that most difficult of all topics – death. They also learn that sharing and expressing is a good first step towards comfort. GOOD-BYE SKINK is a resource for all ages.
