Story of the dragonfly and death
Waterbugs and Dragonflies: Explaining Death to Young Children by Doris StickneyHow can we answer the many questions young children have about death? Looking for a meaningful way to explain to neighbourhood children the death of a five year old friend, Doris Stickney adapted the graceful fable about the waterbug that changed into a dragonfly. First published under the title Death in Colloquy (December 1971), the story was revised and expanded in 1982 to become the current bestselling Waterbugs and Dragonflies.
This edition features full-colour paintings by Gloria Ortiz Hernandez, an artist whose work has been exhibited in Europe, South America, and the USA. A native of Columbia, she currently lives and creates her work on a farm in Pennsylvania.

We are very sad. On Saturday, a gentle giant in our small community passed away. It was sudden and unexpected. He leaves behind his beautiful wife and three young children. Our teachers gave us guidelines on how to support our own children through the shock of one of their classmates loosing a parent. I want to share the story one of our teachers read to us last night. It is a beautiful story to help children at all levels of development and comprehension and adults too through a difficult time like this.
