"Many times as a parent you don’t know how to discuss grief or death with your child because you are grieving as well.  My daughter was four when her big brother passed away.  Having books like the Super Dog Zam Grief Healing Series are so important for family members. 


Children are extremely resistant to opening up when they don’t know how to communicate their feelings.  These books are not only empowering for the children, but for the adults in their lives as well."


- Amber Wilkins

Mother, in loving memory of her son Noah


"As an educator, I know that children express themselves differently. The Super Dog Zam Grief Healing Series is a wonderful way to open the doors of communication with a child about the very difficult subjects of grief and death.


The series provides a wonderful tool for understanding grief and most importantly healing.


The workbooks can be used individually or in a group setting. 


Children relate to the characters and are able to discuss their feelings, knowing that they are not alone."

There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out-of-line sequence sentences.


Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters, settings, etc. to keep track of. This could also make another great children’s educational story movie, a classroom presentation, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series.


There is no doubt in my mind this is an extremely easy rating of 5 stars.


Super Dog Zam has secret powers. He grew up on a farm with his Mom. There was also Uncle Skip (hedgehog), Aunt Mary (cat), the twin sheep: Juan & Julie, Kira (butterfly), Billy (hamster), & Pete (bulldog).
Super Dog Zam only has 3-legs.


1-day when Super Dog Zam was outside playing with his friends they told him the humans took his mother to the veterinarian.

When Mom returned, she told Super Dog Zam the bad news. Something is wrong with her heart & she is not going to live much longer. Mom & Super Dog Zam spent a lot of time together.
Mom said Uncle Skip & Aunt Mary would look after him as well as the farmer & his family.



Super Dog Zam started to keep a diary.1-morning when Super Dog Zam woke up & barked Good morning, his Mom didn’t answer She had died quietly in her sleep. Things weren’t the same for Super Dog Zam. 


As promised Uncle Skip & Aunt Mary stepped in to comfort Super Dog Zam. Kira (butterfly) became awfully close to him. In his dream Mom told Super Dog Zam 1-day she would meet him in Dog Heaven, but not now. She also told him about his superpowers. 


Uncle Skip gave Super Dog Zam some strong advice about how to use his superpowers for the good.1-day Super Dog Zam went to tell Uncle Skip & Aunt Mary it was time for him to leave the farm.
