ON SAYING GOODBYE
His muzzle is turning white, his fur isn't as thick as it used to be, and his howl now as a few tremors in it, but Old Coyote's memory is as sharp as ever. He can recall when there wasn't any city near his home, and there were no highways with cars breaking speed limits. Since he can't run the way he used to Old Coyote sort of ambles along thinking about the past. He returns to the den where he lives with Mrs. Coyote. Together they think of their children and grandchildren, all 129 of them! But, he aches, he hurts. He knows he's grown old. In the way of all coyotes he tells Mrs. Coyote that he will be soon going off. She understands, and licks him on the nose. This tender tale about living a full life and then saying goodbye will help youngsters understand what the final goodbye means. It's a simple story beautifully illustrated in mixed media on paper. - Gail CookeWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
