Murphy's Three Homes: A Story for Children in Foster Care - Jan Levinson Gilman (2009)
This is a slightly heartbreaking story about Murphy, the Tibetan Terrier is a cute, sweet dog who's curiosity frequently gets him into trouble.
The type of trouble that means that he keeps moving from home to home.
Just like a foster child.
I cry when I read this book.
It makes me want to go cuddle my dog. And adopt children.
This book also give notes to caregivers and other adults with tools for conversation, identification of feelings and beliefs, guilt, confusion, grief and loss, shame, distrust, anger, and loneliness.
