Old Coyote

By Nancy Wood
Illustrated by Max Grafe

"This gentle and sensitive story is delivered in just the right respectful manner . . . A comforting take that is suitable for helping to explain death to young children." — School Library Journal

Old Coyote's muzzle is turning white, and his steps are slow. He spends most of his time basking in the sun and remembering. Chasing rabbits, raising pups with Mrs. Coyote, gathering with his friends on the mountain and howling at the moon — it's been a long, full life, and he's grateful for it. But could it be time for him to take one last journey?

  • A universal tale about saying goodbye -- and the continuing circle of life.
