Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
both my daughter and i found this book a comforting way to talking about the death of my father. the illustrations are ravishing -- very textured-looking, which i'm not sure you can see on a computer monitor. and the poem about the cycle of life is dark, yes, in the way that death is dark, but also inspiring -- we're all connected, death is inevitable, and ultimately, the death of one thing nurtures another. the story goes on. i think adults are more likely to be troubled by the narrative than kids; i think kids (my daughter was five when we read it, and now my three-year-old loves it) are drawn to the mystery, and yes, even the violence (not explicitly depicted) of animals killing other animals or humans killing animals for food. the language and rhythms of the poem, too, are beautiful. this is a book to facilitate discussion with your kids.

I find the illustrations delightful, the story well told except for the fact that the farmer shoots a hawk. Now a farmer might shoot a coyote or a fox who he thought was after his chickens or his lambs, but never a hawk as they hunt the rodents. So this inconsistency in the story gives one the chance to discuss human behavior in relation to wildlife with the children to whom one is reading the book. I used it for food chain education with young children. The author was 96 when she wrote it..Wow!

The cover potrays such a cute looking frog and the illustrations are very bright and creative in a collage-like way, But it was such a surprise as I don't read many young children's books where a guy shoots down a hawk for a coyote to eat. I don't recommend this book as the content is too bleak for young readers.

Format: Hardcover
I was very excited after reading the first part of this book. I was going to develop a science lesson for 3rd graders on the food chain. But the whole book is wasted when a farmer shoots a hawk! The story begins with the sun, water, and seed leading to the very beginning of a food chain, a plant. But when the farmer shoots the hawk it is all wasted. Why did the author do this? No reason is given as to why the farmer shoots this bird. The author was trying to show a the hawk is eaten by crows then the left over is buried and becomes part of the soil. This process could have been handle without the killing of the hawk. In Virginia it is illegal to shoot a bird and not retrieve it. Again a great story that is wasted.
