Badger s parting giftsBy Susan VarleyThis is a poignant and touching story about a Badger who is very old and has accepted that he will soon die His only worry is the effect it will have on his friends The time arrives and his friends are as badger feared desperately upset However in time they remember the valuable moments they spent with Badger and the pain begins to be surpassed by fond memoriesThis book deals with the subject of death in a very sensitive and responsible way It conveys that death is a very natural and inevitable part of life and does not shy away from the unavoidable hurt that ensues Nevertheless this book manages to confront these issues without being bleak and suggests that though the person has passed away they still live within us through our shared experience There are no angels or promises of paradise this book does not project a religious perspective but demonstrates a Humanist viewpoint that an individual s responsibility and legacy lies in the positive influence and the relationships they nurture during their lifetime Badger s Parting Gifts offers the simple consolation that Each of the animals had a special memory of badger something he had taught them that they could now do extremely well I would recommend this as a great book to use if you find you have to deal with the subject of death in class The copy I read was published in 1984 and though beautifully illustrated would not have been vibrant enough to have made it on to the shelves now However the dated appearance of the book seems to award it weight and authority on the issues it confronts so tenderly
