How I Learned to Fall Out of Trees

(2) K-3 In a thoughtful effort to prepare best friend Roger for her move, Adelia teaches him how to climb a tree and "how to fall"; her speech-balloon instructions make good guidelines for life as well as tree-climbing. Circular illustrations show soft objects Adelia collects--for the pile Roger finally falls into with a smile. This tender story is an eloquent metaphor for saying goodbye and allowing memories to cushion the blow.
