    " So sweet. I want to learn the technique of the illustrator, especially in the end-papers. I want Fletcher to be my child, too, or maybe I want every child to have the heart of Fletcher as he frets that his favorite tree must be ill as it's leaves are dying and being lost. "

    " Such a cute story. Fletcher and the Falling Leaves would be great to read in the Autumn. A lesson can be done with this story comparing trees in all the different seasons and the different color leaves. Sequencing the different events could also help children with math and comprehension . "
