illustrated by Whitney Martin

Goodbye, Jake is the story of a family coping with the loss of one of their beloved pets, Jake, a red and black greyhound. The story centers on Cole, an inquisitive, sensitive young boy.  Jake’s passing is Cole’s first experience  with death. With the help of his grandmother and a local archaeologist studying ancient Native American cultures, Cole learns how people, past and present preserve memories and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have died.  Goodbye, Jake is a reassuring story for children dealing with the death of a pet or anyone coping with loss.
