What Is Death?
by Etan Boritzer, Illustrated by Nancy Forrest
This sensitive book introduces children to the various concepts of death, grief and loss. Using a gentle and comforting tone with an honest, down-to-earth approach, the book addresses children’s natural curiosity about one of life’s gratest mysteries. Reflecting on themes of tolerance and understanding for various world customs and beliefs related to death and dying, children will receive a message of hope and encouragement to embrace life.
