Cipariso, referencing Greek mythology from which the Cypress tree received its name and became a symbol of mourning, intertwines four different stories of four children who lose their loved animals. It is a picture book that will help children assimilate the loss of a pet and overcome their grief, learning to deal with other losses in life.
In Cipariso there is a little dog who gets lost in a park, a sleeping rabbit, a horse up in the clouds, and a bird setting off on a long, long journey.
In Cipariso there is Irene playing jump rope, George looking up at the sky, Molly who has bad dreams, and Danny carrying a backpack full of T-shirts.
In Cipariso there are four winds and a treethe tallest tree in the whole cityand it's crying
