The third title in Boritzer’s best-selling What Is? life concepts series introduces children to the concept of death, with examples of customs and beliefs from different religions and cultures. While addressing children’s natural curiosity about the subject, the book also challenges them to reflect on the themes of tolerance and identity. Using a gentle, comforting tone and an honest approach, it encourages children to embrace the positive in life. Forrest provides upbeat, colorful and culturally diverse illustrations. Excellent reviews in American Death Education Committee, Today’s Librarian and Zen Hospice Project. From the author of What Is God?
