A perennial favorite, while I am a huge Leo Buscalia fan, I simply adore this book most of all.
Recently I purchased this to give to a friend whose little girl has experienced her sisters, great grandmother, and grandfather all passing away this year . It's something that stayed with me and I think it's something everyone needs to read at least once
The images inside are lovely photos of trees and leaves from different seasons. It's more text than images, but it works for this story.
It was important to me to find a way to discuss death without it being specifically religious. This book fulfills that need for me. It discusses life, death, and change by using the different seasons while still remaining matter-of-fact in a gentle tone.
It doesn't really offer any deep answers, and it doesn't pretend to know the meaning of life the universe and anything. But it does offer a comforting story about how death is a part of life (in as far a story about death can be comforting). Even reading this for the first time as an adult I found it quite worthy.
I gave this book to my great grandsons when their great grandfather died, as my grandson and his wife didn't know what to say to their children about the death of their beloved great grandfather. It truly is beneficial to all ages when a loved one dies.
You may find it interesting that I am a coordinator/leader of a bereavement group at my church. My material/approach there is totally faith based, while this book is not.
