Stay: A Girl, a Dog, a Bucket List

(1) K-3 Illustrated by M. Sarah Klise. As Astrid's dog Eli ages, Astrid creates a bucket list for them; in the end, the best friends come to understand that it is the togetherness that really matters. A tender tension between the ebullient text and the touching acrylic paintings suggests the inevitability of loss. This poignant picture book captures the special child-dog relationship and the precious value of caring for loved ones.
