Education, Gimick or Art?

Dead bug funerals? At first, the concept seems odd, but there is an educational benefit.

Perhaps this Dead Bug Funeral Kit by David Barringer can help children with the difficult topic of death. Or perhaps this is merely a clever piece of art. Maybe both.

The Dead Bug Funeral Kit comes with a 32-page Illustrated Buggy Book of Eulogies with Ribbon Bookmark, Casket, Grave Marker, White Clay Flower, Burial Scroll, and Pouch of Grass Seed. Appropriate for the following insects - Ant, Bee, Beetle, Butterfly, Caterpillar, Cockroach, Cricket, Doodlebug, Fly, Grasshopper, Ladybug, Lightning Bug, Praying Mantis, Spider or Stickbug.
