Sometimes it is the simplest combination of words and pictures that captures your heart and gets you thinking. Reading this book with a child will take you in many directions. You will talk about fruit trees, falling leaves, roots and branches and the air we breathe. The art is magical in its simplicity, but full of details to explore. (Literacy tip: read the story through once and then let your child tell you what’s going on. Encourage them to talk about the pictures and turn the pages at their own pace as they develop their narrative skill). Place a hold.
