Overview

About Death presents a gentle, yet unsentimental, story about how a family deals with the death of their beloved dog. The story is followed by a series of questions a child might pose about death and It's aftermath, particularly the rituals and cultural customs that accompany the death of a person. The answers to these questions, like the story that precedes them, are frank and respectful of the child's curiosity. at the same time, both the story and the questions are illustrated by lovely watercolors that say, without words, "yes, death makes us sad." a short poem that follows reminds us that death is a part of life. Ages 5+
