This is a tender story about loss and change, written to help parents explain their views about life and death. Children may identify with Nym, who grieves the loss of her friend, and find it easier to express their unique feelings about a loss after hearing the story. Through a vision or dream, Nym learns that Lea has transformed into a beautiful dragonfly above the marsh. Someday, Nym will see her friend again in this new world. This beautifully illustrated book is often used to help explain death to children or to engage children in an open dialogue about death. The story has been adapted into several theatrical performances in various communities to help children cope with the death of their classmates. The book is cherished by parents, grandparents, and teachers.
