by Jan Thornhill
The death of a bird is the jumping-off point for this intelligent, wide-ranging look at the cycle of life. From various lifespans to how beings die, from what happens after death to how people cope with the loss of a loved one this book guides young readers through difficult territory with grace, sensitivity and humor. Straightforward but with a life-affirming perspective that imbeds death in the natural, never-ending cycle of life. Lively design and color photographs appeal to young children ages 4-12.
