What is Death?


What is Death? is the 3rd title in Etan Boritzer’s best selling What is? series of Life Concepts books on character education and social issues. What is Death? addresses children’s natural curiosity about this difficult subject. Introducing the concept of death with examples of customs and beliefs from different religions and cultures, the book also allows the reader to reflect on themes of tolerance, identity and generosity. Reality-based and using a gentle and comforting tone, What Is Death? takes an honest approach and encourages children to embrace the positive in life. In its 5th edition, this book has become a standard part of many grief and loss therapist’s professional resources.


Inspirational in the best sense and exceptionally readable, for people of all ages, it is a gem to be treasured.
