All the Dear Little Animals

We rated this book:


This book is about three little children in Sweden who are really bored one summer day, so they go outside to look for something to do. Then they find a dead bumblebee. The oldest of them decides they should bury all the dead animals they can find. Then Esther calls all their neighbors looking for dead animals to bury. They find somebody in the next village with a dead hamster, so they hold a funeral for it. They sing hymns and say a poem.

It’s a sad book about animals that died and the kids bury them, and then the next day the children stop having funerals and do something else. I like how at the end of the book a picture shows all of the graves the kids made. I would do the same if I found a dead animal. It reminds me of my cat Ari who died. We buried him in the garden and planted a tree on top of him. People who like sad books will like this one, and the drawings are good.
