Nonno (Phil Scrima) and Terra, his German Shephard

Welcome back to Member Monday.  Today we take a peek at Phil Scrima’s latest book The Little Leaf That Wouldn’t Fall.

This is a story about a Little Boy and a Little Leaf who grew up together. They go through the seasons of life and have a loving bond forever. It’s a story about life and death, and that life carries on.

“My Mom and Dad said that leaves can’t talk,” the Little Boy said to the Little Leaf. “How come you can talk to me?”

The leaf curled up, smiled, and then answered, “Anything is possible in a little boy’s or girl’s imagination. That’s what makes them special!”

PHIL (Nonno) SCRIMA lives in Redding, California with his wife Joanne; they have two sons, one daughter, nine grand children and one great-grandchild. Although Phil writes adult fiction, he decided to write some children’s stories for his grandchildren and other children who would like to fantasize in the wonderful world of imagination.
