A mother vulture teaches her young vulture a lesson about the beauty of life.

Mother Vulture takes Little Vulture on his first flight.

On their journey, they see a dying gemsbok. Mother Vulture shows her son that the end of one animal’s life is also the beginning of a new cycle for other creatures.

Created at Book Dash by Alex Latimer (writer), Diane Awerbuck (editor), Gordon Latimer (designer) and Patrick Latimer (illustrator).
