Lifetimesby David L. Rice, Michael S. Maydak
The Universe is our school, nature our teacher, and every species has a lesson for us. With delightful simplicity, Lifetimes introduces some of nature's longest, shortest and most unusual lifetimes. David Rice's "tell about it, think about it" questions for each lifetime are perfect for engaging a young person in a stimulating conversation. This is a favorite book for children and teachers alike.
Author Biography: When David Rice was seven years old, he observed a small dog trying to wake its mother which had been killed by a passing car. As he watched the grieving puppy's vain attempts, he was struck by the depth of sadness and pain. David's lifelong interest in feelings - both animal and human - comes through in his books, Do Animals Have Feelings Too?, Lifetimes and Because Brian Hugged His Mother. Lifetimes introduces some of nature's longest, shortest and most unusual lifetimes and the lessons we can learn from them. Because Brian Hugged His Mother shows how a chain reaction of kindness can spread through a whole school and community as a result of a single hug. David Rice is retired elementary and special education teacher, currently residing in southern California.
