Detailed illustrations and straightforward text provide a definitive look at the cycle of life and how the process is necessary in nature while also commenting on how death effects people personally and the skills they use to cope with such a trauma when it occurs. Simultaneous.

The death of a bird is the jumping-off point for this intelligent, wide-ranging look at the cycle of life. From life spans to how things die, from what happens after death to how people cope with the loss of a loved one, Jan Thornhill guides young readers through difficult territory with grace, sensitivity, and touches of humor. She tackles the subject head on, never shirking from reality, but with a life-affirming perspective that connects death to the world around us as part of the natural, never-ending cycle of life. The book’s lively design and color photographs reinforce Thornhill’s pragmatic, positive tone.

My 5 year old loves this book. It talks about life and death in a very unique way, dealing with animals, plants, insects, etc. It deals with topics such as extinction, scavengers, disease, natural disasters, mourning and grief to name a few.
