The nice peeps at Storybooth reached out to me about their new video that was written by a 10 year old boy named Jack. "Losing Leo" is such a touching story about a boy losing his best friend...his dog Leo. By having this video out there to share, it really helps kids know they are not alone when facing a very sad time of losing a beloved pet.
Storybooth is a digital platform that invites kids to record and submit their stories with a chance to have them animated and shared with the world. Embarrassment, heartbreak, challenges or triumphs; funny, sad, serious, or silly - they're looking for all kinds of stories - they just need to be real. Stories they select are then turned into animations and are published and distributed online for viewing, sharing, and engaging with on computers, tablets, and mobile devices. How darn cool is that? Very, I say.
In this story, Jack shares the amazing connection he had with his dog Leo, how it felt to have to let him go, and how he ended up being okay with it.
You can see many inspiring and heart-warming videos on their website, www.Storybooth.com
