The Copper Tree

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.


The Copper Tree approaches the difficult subject of grief with sensitivity and sound judgement. Addressing key parts of the National Curriculum, children are safely guided through this most difficult transitional process with understanding, humour and care.

– Revd Dr Paul Fitzpatrick
