A timely message of hope and comfort, this stunning picture book is the perfect treasure to share with anyone trying to navigate these uncertain times—or any life transition!
Starting a book at the end may seem confusing. But the end of one thing is just the beginning of something new in this innovative and heartfelt book from #1 New York Times bestselling author Mike Bender. Accompanied by beautiful and inspiring illustrations by Diana Mayo, this story is ideal for helping kids understand how to meet life’s challenges with optimism and hope. A wonderful gift for all ages.
Beginning with "THE END," this thought-provoking picture book uses the phrase as an exercise in altering one's perception about conclusions. While a child initially questions a book that starts with its ending, the book's narrator, a caterpillar, reassures readers: "Prepare to have your mind blown... the end isn't really the end. It's just the beginning of something else!" Examples of this lens-change follow: sunset is the end of the day but also the beginning of the night. A rocket ship blasts off and reaches, Bender writes, "the end of the sky.../ otherwise known as/ the beginning of outer space." And "the end of a mistake.../ is just the beginning/ of learning something new." Throughout, gauzy, gently hued mixed-media scenes by Mayo show an ethnically inclusive group of children experiencing various beginnings and endings. Readers may well guess the words on the final page of this forward-looking volume, which is just right for readers anxious about finality. Ages 3 7. \n
