This story is a great story about the
life and death in nature. It shows how leaves live and eventually die.
There was a leaf named Freddie. He was an older
leaf. He had been
through winter, spring, summer and fall. In the story he had to deal
with the death of his fellow leaves. Some of his fellow leaves died in
fall. Some died in winter.
This was a great book that demonstates that
death is not just a part of human life, but is also a part of nature.
This is an excellent book for children.
