Sinopsis:

Fiction; General

From Library Journal:

Gignoux, who has spent 12 years as a play therapist with pediatric HIV patients at Harlem Hospital, has gathered stories and folktales that attempt to reconcile the human spirit to both the inevitability and the naturalness of death. Tales are included from cultures as diverse as ancient Greece and the Hausa of West Africa as well as from time periods as varied as medieval Ireland and the Grimm Brothers' Germany of the 1800s. The collection is divided into sections entitled "Origins of Death," "Balancing Life and Death," "Lessons for Life," "After Death," and "Reconciliation with Death." Each story is accompanied by commentary from the author, incorporating relevant cultural background, related incidents from the author's life, and questions intended to stimulate thinking about death. Appropriate for independent reading by middle and upper elementary students, this could also be a valuable resource for educators, grief therapists, and physicians.?Katherine K.
