My Little Boy in Furry Pants is primarily a children's book for the wondering child in all of us, regardless of our age. The author tells a delightful story about her animal companions and how they have taught her that when our bodies die, our spirits go on forever. Chery's dogs and cats have shown her that love crosses all boundaries and triumphs even after the body has died and the spirit goes "home" to heaven. Through her stories of Rufus, Maja, Sheelin, Lucy-Liu, and Itza, the author explores life after death, near-death experiences, and the truth that ultimately, death does not separate us from those we love. Chery Esau also gently introduces young readers to new concepts such as animal communicator, animals mourning, animals in spirit, telepathy, animals in heaven, and animals as teachers and healers. Bottom line, this children's book encourages children to be sensitive and kind to animals. Whimsical four-color illustrations accompany this wonderful story about animal companions and humans who love one another unconditionally.
