The Dead Bird

A Book About Children Encountering Death


F​ew children in park come across a bird lying in the park. It's body is warm, but they check for a heartbeat and there is none. They know the bird is dead. They mourn the bird but are glad they can give it a burial. In their own childlike way, they bury the word, lay some flowers, cry a little and visit it sometime more. 

Through this book Margret Wise Brown tells us death is a way of life. We stop being but live on in the memories of those who remember us still. A picture book that helps us ponder about the nature of death and life.
