Book review by VIP Club Member Layla Mackie.
This is a beautifully illustrated, thought provoking, combination of science and story telling. A ‘matter of fact’ yet sensitive story tackling a difficult subject. It provides an opportunity to discuss death with children in a non-religious or belief-driven way. Having read the book to my five year old, and once my nine year old had read it independently, they had many questions. We were then able to have a relaxed conversation about the ‘circle of life’, what it means, and how living things are all connected.
