There are a number of books about the topic, but this quite unique. It explains death… well… exactly the way it is for every living being, treating all living beings as equal: "There is beginning and an ending for everything that is alive. In between is living."
Illustrations are poetic, nearly botanical, old masters school watercolors. Sadly the print result is under their quality level, but I think it's a problem of how the originals were scanned/digitalized.
This book is perfect for Montessori families, for atheists, for those who practice zen meditation and for believers whose faith is rooted in the bliss of real life truth, even when it seems harder then ever.
I highly recommend the book, that makes one of the most difficult topic in life, natural, real and much more easy to explain.
A lot of books on this topic are targeted for bereaved children, which doesn't apply to my son, he just has questions and worries.
The pages I've photographed give an idea of the tone of the book, but it is interspersed with beautiful pictures.
It is gentle and peaceful and a lovely way to explain life, death and the time in between.
My 3 year old daughter loved the book from the first reading and loves to ask about all the pictures and descriptions. This was the perfect book to try to help her understand about death and to do so in a really life-affirming way.
