    An ordinary day in an ordinary neighborhood turns out to be quite extraordinary in this moving story about the circle of life. It’s an average day in the neighborhood-children play, roses are watered, and a crow watches over it all. But then two visitors arrive at two houses, one to help a family say hello to a new baby and one to help a family say goodbye to a beloved pet.

    This sensitive picture book takes a gentle look at life, death, the bonds of family, and the extraordinary moments that make ordinary days so special.

    Review

    On an ordinary day in the neighbourhood, everything seems to be proceeding as usual - kids play, one of the neighbours overwaters her flowers. But something extraordinary is happening.

    At the same time, two visitors wearing stethoscopes appear and enter two houses. In the house on the left, a family is getting ready to say goodbye to their old dog, who, assisted by the vet, breathes her last. In the house on the right, a mother is getting ready to give birth; assisted by the nurse, she brings a new life into the world.

    Two different stories brought together by coincidence, summing up the beauty, tragedy, and uniqueness of each moment. A beautiful, gentle story about death and life, and how easy it is to take seemingly ordinary days for granted.
