Fletcher and the Falling Leaves

This is an enchanting story of a little fox who doesn't understand the coming of Fall and what is happening to his friend Tree. The illustrations are gorgeously rendered and often offer unusual perpectives. While this is a charming story about the change of seasons, it would also help to open a dialogue with a child coping with loss. Fletcher is both vulnerable and brave as he faces big changes to his environment. Neither children nor adults will be able to help loving him! -Rhiannon
