The Dead Bird
There is a little bird lying on its side. Its eyes are closed and there's no heart beat. The children are very sorry, so they decide to say good-bye. In the forest, they dig a hole for the bird, and cover it with warm ferns and flowers. Finally, their sweet song sends the little bird on its way. Full color.
