Circle of life story. As baby grows to teen and adult, grandpa shrinks and eventually passes over; and a new baby is born. Told with a good and fairly quick pace, in a matter-of-fact manner, without dwelling on potentially sad aspects of story. Words and illustrations are very good. Mem Fox again proves herself to be an amazing writer.
