See the entire lesson by downloading the preview. In this book, Leo Buscaglia uses the lifecycle of a leaf as metaphor for human life, the passage of time, and death. The reader is introduced to Freddie, a young and curious leaf. The seasons of a maple tree offer a parallel to our human life span. Freddie wonders about his existence and gets advice and reassurance from an older leaf, Daniel. When Daniel lets go of his life-giving branch, he opens the way for Freddie to do the same. The story ends on the hopeful note of spring.
