      This was an odd one It started off as a metaphorical look at death and what is left as a legacy when a person s life has ended, but then it took a sharp left turn into magical realism So I don t know what to tell you My best guess is that it would be good for a jumping off point for lessons about conservation.

      This is a gorgeous and mystical and hilarious book My 6 year old read it over and over and laughed out loud at the crazy tea and the ornithologist and the wonderful adventurous grandmother She also loved the drama and sweetness of the children s dilemma Now I want to read Erdrich s books for adults.
