Another monument

Borrowed from The Dead Bird, the children's classic by Margaret Wise Brown (author of Goodnight Moon).

I have been thinking about this illustration all day,
about our primitive need to mark graves and honour them.
That's all.

Click the link, read the book (from your library if not Amazon - that's okay with me!), share it with your kids!


  1. Did you know that elephants bury their dead under a pile of leaves and brush? I believe they are the only mammal (other than people) that has a burial ritual.
