Synopsis

I Found a Dead Bird A Guide the the Cycle of Life and Death by Jan Thornhill

I found a dead bird. It made me sad...but I also had a lot of questions, like: Why did it have to die? How did it die? What would happen to it now that it was dead? These questions, and many others, are tackled in this multi-award winning book by acclaimed Canadian author Jan Thornhill. It is an intelligent, sensitive and wide-ranging book about death and the cycle of life. Talking about death, even thinking about it, can be unsettling, but avoiding the topic can add to our fears. Explore fascinating aspects of life, and the end of life, as you make connections to the world around you in the pages of this groundbreaking book.
