Book Description The Pilgrim Press, United States, 1999. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. How can we answer the many questions young children have about death?Doris Stickney and her minister husband were looking for a meaningful way to explain to neighborhood children the death of a five-year-old friend -- an explanation that would satisfy not only the children but adult minds as well. While they were preparing for the child s memorial service, the fable of the water bug that changed into a dragonfly came to mind.`Water Bugs and Dragonflies` tells the story of a small colony of water bugs living happily below the surface of a quiet pond. Every so often one of them climbs up a lily stalk and disappears from sight, never to return. Those left behind are faced with the mystery of figuring out what has become of them.Revealing the `miracle that makes shiny dragonflies out of ugly bugs`, this graceful story reminds us that God has given us the means of transforming our metaphorical selves into dragonflies capable of winging off contentedly into a new world. Recognizing that `the old answers will not satisfy today s children`, Stickney presents instead a simple, wise tale that illuminates a difficult reality without pretending to contain all the answers.This bona fide bestseller -- more than 150,000 copies have been printed -- is presented here in a deluxe gift edition, including newly rendered full-color illustrations. Set in large type so that young readers can enjoy it themselves, Water Bugs also includes accompanying information that offers the author s own insights for explaining how adults can effectively assist children in coping with death.
