The art is charming, fresh and engaging, making what could be a challenging subject lightly humorous, natural and straightforward.
Like many great children's books, the story and art can be appreciated by readers of all ages.
A good book to start conversations about the cycle of life / death.
Curriculum connections: social studies, health.
