a fantastic concept that makes the fact of dealing with one's eventual demise less threatening. i would like to see an animated version of this. god bless.


You are born, you live, you die

by mom4grandma2 on Feb 5, 2009

The Fall of Feddie the Leaf "was purchased for a four year old whose mother died of cancer recently. However, I haven't give it to her. I'm uncertain about a four year old's ability to relate Freddie's explanation of the cycle of a leaf's life to her aching heart, and her mommy's empty chair at the breakfast table. Perhaps an older child could see the parallel with Freddie's wisdom about the life cycle. It's a pleasant story, but not as helpful to children undergoing grief as I had hoped.


The Cycle of Life

by sd6161 on Oct 5, 2007

The Fall of Freddie the Leaf by Leo Buscaglia is a gentle, touching allegory to help children who have suffered a loss understand the cycle of life. The book is highlighted with beautiful color photographs to enhance the text and ensure translation or understanding to the youngest of readers. A very good book to translate the subject of death with children regardless of whether the loss is a pet, community member or family relative.
