Oliver Finds His Way

By Phyllis Root

A small bear looks for—and finds—courage and a way home.


While Mama hangs the wash out
and Papa rakes the leaves,
Oliver chases a big yellow leaf . . .

Oliver is so intent on following a blowing autumn leaf that he doesn’t even notice that he’s lost his way. All alone at the edge of the woods, he starts to cry. He cries and cries - but he is still lost. And so he rubs his nose and tries to think. . . .

With characteristic warmth, humor, and a firm faith in the power of pluck, Phyllis Root quietly captures a big, defining moment in the world of a small child.
