Before I Leave

Before I LeaveBy Jessixa Bagley

The little hedgehog’s family tells her that they are moving far away. How will she say goodbye to her best friend? She and her anteater best friend decide to play one last time. They play like nothing is changing. This is a sweet moving story. It is told in very few words, with simple watercolor pictures. It will appeal to young children, especially those who have moved and left friends behind.
