Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
The passing of a relative or friend can be a bewildering time for children. Why Do People Die? is a poignant, moving, and straight-forward book wherein children will discover answers to their questions when those they love die. Designed to be read aloud to young children, Why Do People Die? is a full-color picture book that delivers information forthrightly, honestly, and in a consoling tone. It answers all the questions children could possibly ask, such as why people die, what happens at a funeral, and why the child feels so sad. A parent who is stuck for words or needs a little help with an explanation will find here a sensitively illustrated text that eases children's minds and brings them comfort and assurance. Cynthia MacGregor's sensitive and informative text is superbly illustrated by David Clark's colorful and engaging illustrations. (The Children's Bookwatch/The Midwest Book Review)
