Teaching children about life and death can be as touchy a subject as talking to a teen about sex, but the 'Death is Wrong' children's book suggests that a different conversation needs to take place. Living in an age of technology, it broaches the idea that death might not be in present children's future. Similar to the premise of the highly anticipated film, 'Transcendence,' 'Death is Wrong' invites readers to consider living on through technology.

Written by Gennady Stolyarov and illustrated by his wife, Wendy, 'Death is Wrong' explores research from the likes of Aubrey de Grey and Ray Kurzweil in a way that is easily relatable and digestible. Stolyarov uses his own confusion about death as a starting point to spread this unique viewpoint.
