Lifetimes: The beautiful way to explain death to children
While written primarily for Baby-Preschool reading level, this excellent illustrated book has important concepts for adults.
There is a beginning
and an ending for everything
that is alive.
In between is living.
All around us, everywhere,
beginnings and endings
are going on all the time.
With living in between.
This is true for all living things.
Even for the tiniest insect.
A pet . . . a friend . . . or a relative dies, and it must be explained to a child. This sensitive book is a useful tool in explaining to children that death is a part of life and that, eventually, all living things reach the end of their own special lifetimes.
