Talking to children about death can be hard, but it doesn't need to be. Water Bugs and Dragonflies: Explaining Death to Young Children in the Looking Up Series can help you to answer their questions.
Doris Stickney, in Water Bugs and Dragonflies, tells the story of a small colony of water bugs living happily below the surface of a very quiet pond. Every so often one of them climbs up a lily stalk and disappears from sight, never to return. Those left behind are faced with the mystery of what has become of them. The answer to death lies in the questioning.
Stickney invites you and your children into the question. This paper edition, part of the Looking Up series, features enchanting illustrations from Cleveland, Ohio artist Robyn Henderson Nordstrom.
