Overview

A beautiful life-affirming picture book by award-winning team Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross

Mayfly might have only one day to live, but she enjoys every moment by observing all the wonderful life teeming around her and rejoicing in her own. As she soars over the sky at dawn she bathes in the golden light, and she dances to the music of the universe. Throughout the day she sees a multitude of glorious things, including flowers blooming, a summer's rain, children playing on a lawn, and a sky filled with rainbows. With illustrations that are whimsicle and bright, Mayfly teaches children and adults alike to cherish the gift of being alive each day.
