This book talks about how there is a beginning, ending of everything that's alive and in between that is living. Such as the lifetime for plants, people, birds, fish, trees and animals.

REVIEW: "Lifetimes is a moving book for children of all ages, even parents too. It lets us explain life and death in a sensitive, caring, beautiful way. Lifetimes tells us about beginnings. And about endings. And about living in between. With large, wonderful illustrations, it tells about plants. About animals. About people. It tells that dying is as much a part of living as being born. It helps us to remember. It helps us to understand"
