A child learns about the life cycle by observing a Kingfisher family with their grandfather. The illustrations are in calm pastel greens and blues and slowly introduce the idea of death as both the grandfather and the Kingfisher adults age. This book is a celebration of nature and is meant to be a gentle introduction to the natural ending for us all one day. This was a sweetly done book introducing death and life cycles and does not go into grief or feelings about the topic. I would know your audience and be ready for harder discussions that may arise from this book before choosing to read this with younger children.
