Explains that different plants and animals have different lifespans and grow up at different rates

Publishers Description
When the death of a relative, a friend, or a pet happens or is about to happen . . . how can we help a child to understand?
"Lifetimes" is a moving book for children of all ages, even parents too. It lets us explain life and death in a sensitive, caring, beautiful way. "Lifetimes" tells us about beginnings. And about endings. And about living in between. With large, wonderful illustrations, it tells about plants. About animals. About people. It tells that dying is as much a part of living as being born. It helps us to remember. It helps us to understand.
"Lifetimes" . . . a very special, very important book for you and your child. The book that explains--beautifully--that all living things have their own special "Lifetimes."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
classroom use  Mar 22, 2008
We used this book in every classroom discussion in our elementary school when we had a death among our faculty. It was very helpful
book on death for kids & their adults  Mar 9, 2007
As advertised - great pictures, nice text, very use-able especially with pre-school kids -
Lifetimes  Jan 22, 2007
This is a really great book to get for children and to read to children. It explains life from birth to death on a level kids can relate to. When you are at a loss for words trying to figure out how to make a child understand, you need to read this book .
Useful, factual book about death  Nov 26, 2006
After introducing the subject of death with "Remember the Butterflies," I answered my daughter's question, "What does 'die' mean?" with this book. Unlike the other books we read to process her grandfather's death, she never wanted this one again, but it was very useful for answering that question. Its repeated message that everything alive dies, I think, gently but firmly leads to acceptance of this sad truth.
Simply stated, great for any age.  Nov 6, 2006
I purchased this book for my 5 year old daughter based on the previous reviews. Although we have not had a recent death in the family she was struggling with the fear of death to come. This book helped calm her fears and gave her a different way to look at dying by introducing the idea of "lifetimes" of all things, not just people. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs help explaining death. It was a great help.
