Snow Leopard to Publish Buddy and Bea!

Snow Leopard Publishing is proud to announce the upcoming release of their new picture book entitled, Buddy and Bea. Buddy and Bea is a story about the circle of life, and will not only help children understand loss, but adults.


There is no easy way to explain its meaning and purpose, especially to young children. There is no manual or instructions for talking about it with the children in our lives. And no wonder; even as adults, the “circle of life” can be hard to wrap your mind around and accept.

Buddy and Bea addresses the issue on a child’s level, through the heart-warming story of two friends who grow close before having to be separated from each other. Even children who have not experienced loss themselves can relate to this touching tale.

Join Buddy the leaf as he buds from a tree branch in spring, meets his new friend Bea the bird, and form an instant bond. With the passing seasons, the two talk and laugh as Buddy grows and matures into a fully grown leaf with the beautiful colors of fall. And then, Bea must endure the loss of her friend as Buddy falls from his tree home.

The book gently relates the issue of the meaning of life, love, and friendship in a way a child can understand. Your child will love this story and its colorful characters.

The book is written by award winning author, Len Saunders, who lost his Father eight months before he was born. Len struggled as a child trying to understand what happened to his Dad, and why he was not around to play with or talk with as other families were fortunate to have in their lives.

The book will be released for pre-order on June 26, 2016. Ironically, June 26 was the day Len's Dad had passed which turned out to be a interesting coincidence.
