The turtle passes away and members of the turtle's community reflect on turtle's life. A very good way of showing death and grief for children.

This is a perfect story to help little ones deal with and understand death of a a family or friend. Would definitely recommend this.

This is a beautiful book to help children through a death. All the animals of the ocean whose lives were touched by Old Turtle remember his kindness and his humour; they honour his memory by telling the stories and passing the stories on. The illustrations are beautiful and vividly help tell each creatures story.
