'Sammy in the Sky' aims to help kids cope with loss of a pet

If you were young when a family pet died - or you lost a family pet when your children were young - then you know the pain and confusion kids can go through with the loss of a pet.

Journalist Barbara Walsh tackles that topic in a new book, "Sammy in the Sky." The book includes illustrations by Jamie Wyeth.
