There is a last that can be found at anytime. The last bit of chocolate, the last day of winter, the last moment in the womb, the missing last piece of a puzzle among others. A last can be a possibility, a beginning, a shortcoming, a fear, a sorrow or a change. Some lasts are happy, some just plain sad. This book is a collection of treasures inviting to open conversations about each and everyone’s lasts.

This warm-hearted and exquisite picture book is a gathering of special moments in life collected with a sensitive eye by award winning author-illustrator Maija Hurme.

Maija Hurme

Maija Hurme likes to pick up influences for her stories from her own and others' children, nature, small strange objects and the environment. In Maija's opinion, picture books are important: "The pictures we see as children stay with us and can surface in one way or another later in life. Picture books must be of high quality and versatile, and there must be many narrators' voices and variety in the visual storytelling. Children's books are special because they are read again and again. A child learns language through books and feels a closeness with the reader. Reading aloud can be a wonderful, unique moment together with the child or a routine to get the children to sleep. Both are important!"
