Bryan Mellonie wrote and Robert Ingpen illustrated a book about living and dying back in 1986. After all these years we have only just discovered it. As they point out in words suitable for children and adults like: ‘There is a beginning and an ending to everything that is alive. In between is a lifetime. Dying is as much a part of life as being born.’
“This is true … For plants. For people. For birds. For fish. For trees. For animals. EVERYWHERE!” Beginnings and Endings with LIFETIMES in between, is a timeless story and so lovingly told. It deserves to be in every public library. If you come across a copy, treasure it.
