When Olivia's teacher, Miss Evans, dies, the children at her school are encouraged to think of everything that reminds them of her.
Written with touching sensitivity and sprinkled with light hearted moments, 'The Copper Tree' is about love and legacy and will help children understand that while sadness is an inevitable part of grief, death is not necessarily the end... for what is left behind can be everlasting.
Praise for The Copper Three
"The Copper Tree gives the clear and unsentimental message that it's quite natural to be sad when someone dies but it also endorses the powerful effects of memory as a means of healing". Kate Saunders, Children's Author
"A delightful and touching story of life and how we live it, as little people and bigger people, together and on our own. 'The Copper Tree' brings a tear and a smile to my face at the same time". Ger Graus, Chief Executive, The Children's University
"The perfect story for children who have lost a parent or much loved figure in their life, honest unsentimental and reassuring. It belongs in every home and school library". Barbara Smith, former Acting Head Teacher, Mount Pellon School, Halifax
