5.0 étoiles sur 5 ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS! 25 mars 1998
Par PAUL DRAGAVON (dragavon@aol.com) - Publié sur Amazon.com
In 1964 I found this book in a library in Augsburg, Germany while searching for a way to explain to my 5 year old daughter the sudden death of her 3 month old brother. I checked the book out and read it to her that afternoon. The simple story of a group of children finding the dead bird and burying it with a little, sincere and heart-felt ceremony was comforting to her, and with the last picture of the children playing nearby and falling leaves beginning to cover the little grave she was able to understand the finality of death. She said, "And we'll always be able to remember Matt when we want to, won't we, Dad?" This is the only "real" Childrens' book about death that I have ever seen. It should be in every pre-school and kindergarten library; no, in every library!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Remains a favourite over many years 27 mars 2009
Par Jay3fer - Publié sur Amazon.com
I bought this book in a discount bin (along with William's Doll, another inexpensive paperback classic!) many years ago when my older kids (now 13 and 14) were toddlers.

I brought it out recently when my father died and it sat all week in our shiva house, where it evoked a whole range of reactions from all the adults my 3-year-old daughter asked to read it to her (over and over and over, which should tell you something).

While many adults reading the book were taken aback by the format of words appearing on pages with no pictures (and vice versa), kids have always seemed to understand it intrinsically: the format forces you to hear the words, pause, see the picture, then pause again before the next words.

This format uniquely allows kids breathing room to think their own thoughts about the pictures and the story.

Other adults were appalled that the children were dealing with death all alone, and that the book actually used the word "dead" without euphemism. Again, that's a-okay in my book: the right words are the only words I try to use with my kids, even if those words are not always lovely. There'll be time enough later on to learn the thousand euphemisms for death.

A few practical folks just pointed out that it's not advisable for anyone to handle dead wildlife. Of course not. I make a point of telling my kids that if they find a dead bird (especially in this era of West Nile) that they're to come show me.

In any event: the book. The simple, childish illustrations by Remy Charlip are timeless and unforgettable and complement the simplicity of the storyline perfectly.

The last page of the book adds so much simply by mentioning that the children do eventually forget about the dead bird. In the final picture, they're playing ball in a nearby field. It's a beautiful day: life goes on.

Death is part of life, but it's not what life is all about. Life, especially for kids, is about the ballgames, and the grief / mourning process is how we get ourselves back to that normal.

Unlike other books for kids about death, it doesn't deal at all with the specifics of dying OR losing someone you love. It simply begins when the bird is dead. Those are important themes, but for younger kids, I have found it so helpful to break it down: the conversation about death does not HAVE to be the conversation about dying, if that makes any sense.

Piece by piece, kids eventually make sense of the world around them. Books like this one really help.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must have for those with young children 20 septembre 2013

I had this book years ago when my children were young. It's gone so I had to have another. It's a must have for folks with young children (e.g. ages three to five years). When children encounter a dead animal (a pet or random) this book is very soothing to be read over and over and over as the child processes the information. When our little kitty was found dead by my 3 year old son (who thought it was "sleeping") we read the book over and over. He then dug a grave, buried it and sang "Little dead kitty we love you; you won't eat cat food anymore" He was soothed with the ritual.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Dead Bird (Margaret Wise Brown) 16 janvier 2012
Par Prof Richard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I've known this book since my kids were small, 40 years ago. It's a treasure of children's literature, and I am appalled to find it out of print. It's a perfect work of art - not a line, not a word out of place. The delicacy of the last sentence - "And every day, until they forgot..." with the children's "gravestone" in the illustration receding into the darkness among the trees - is unsurpassable. Please, someone, reprint it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Touching, Beautiful, Cheap Story 29 septembre 2003
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Such thick deep complicated thoughts were projected through this modern masterpiece. The short title has an underlying thought on society, The Dead Bird. Ah sweet bliss this book touched my heart. Extremely disturbing to some, but they have not the depth or attention span to understand this new Faulknerian. With its joycean techniques and proustian redoolence. This book truely teaches a lesson all of us learn someday the hard way. This book fattens my shelf with its gurth of wisdom. BUY THIS BOOK.
