Grandma died. Grandma was a huge part of my daughter's life. My daughter is 9, but brain damage makes her like a 2-year-old. My daughter prefers to talk about sad/scary things via anthropomorphic animals in picture books. ("Scared like Piglet." "Sad like Franklin.") Any suggestions for a book with animals about death that covers everything simply - sickness, hospital, death, funeral, sadness, saying goodbye, comfort?

Help me recall the name of this book: it's some kind of old textbook-type book, I think, maybe it's about stratigraphy or biology or something. At any rate, there is a famous chapter that is a near-total diversion: a contemplation of death, right in the middle. Ring any bells?
