The Dead Bird

By Margaret Wise Brown and Remy Charlip, 1958

Once again, the great Remy Charlip brings what could be a maudlin subject to life. So to speak.

WHAT DOES THIS BOOK TEACH CHILDREN? Role playing. WHAT ELSE? How to deal with the loss of a pet. At least"until they forget..."
TEACHER ACTIVITIES: Ask children what other things might be fun to bury. How about Mommy's furs? They look just like dead animals.
