A reassuring look at the cycles of life. "When I found a dead ladybug one day, my sister, Wilma, buried it for me. She painted a rock to use as a tombstone." It doesn't take much to start a bug cemetery-a dead ladybug or inchworm, a pitcher of lemonade, and a few tears for a show of proper respect. But when a beloved pet suddenly dies, funerals are no longer any fun. A bug is one thing, but how do you mourn a special friend?With warmth and sensitivity, this subtle picture book explores the difficult emotions associated with losing a loved one.
