Daddy Fixes Everything
Daddy Fixes Everything provides children and their parents with tools to cope with departure and loss; so doing in language and register that are age-appropriate (5-14). The story introduces a father who is ever-busy fixing broken toys and household sundries while surrounded by his children's commotion. All is well until one child (Danielle) discovers that the pet hamster is not moving. Figuring dad, who can fix just about anything, can fix the hamster as well; Danielle arranges a rescue operation, only to find out that resurrection is not included in the father's repertoire of skills...The story then takes a different tone as the family, particularly the children, presented with the first-time experience of facing death and its emotional ramifications, must come to terms with the passing away of their pet. It is a unique story, in approach and its related rewards.
