Life and I: A Story About Death

In stock (34 items available)
This sensitively told story for readers of all ages illustrates the inseparability of life and death. Death, a green-eyed little girl in this pastel world, visits small animals with soft fur and big animals with sharp teeth. She lingers with a kindly grandmother as they knit one last scarf together. For parents of children facing the loss of a family member, a friend, or a pet, this book finds words to express what is often so difficult to explain, ending with a feeling of uplift and acceptance. Author Elisabeth Helland Larsen and illustrator Marine Schneider weave a tapestry out of direct, poetic words and hand-drawn pictures to give voice to emotions that are moving, real, and most of all, honest.
