The Lovereading4Kids comment

September 2012 Book of the Month. Its message is one to treasure. Mayfly lives for only one day. Is she sad? No, everything about that one day is to be celebrated. Mayfly sees buds burst open, she sees babies being born; she feels breezes blowing and she dances to the music of the universe. When her one day comes to an end, Mayfly gives thanks for the wonder of it all. A book of celebration for all to share.

Synopsis

Mayfly Day by Jeanne Willis

Mayfly might have only one day to live, but she enjoys every moment, observing all the life around her, and rejoicing in her own.
