Ballywhinney Girl by Eve Bunting - ADVISABLE
Because of its discomfiting discussions of death, this beautiful picture book is fairly dark, more appropriate for older elementary students. Would make a wonderful jumping-off point for a discussion about respect for the dead or a lesson on mummies, especially since it addresses the lesser-known peat bog ones. EL - ADVISABLE.
