Heartfelt and sincere, The Day I Saw a Dragonfly by Heather Fitzpatrick is a children’s tale that makes letting go a little easier. As the author carries on her father’s dream and a family tradition of storytelling, she shares with readers a special story about angels that fly on the backs of dragonflies. Especially tender to young readers that have suffered the death of a family member or a beloved pet, this narrative celebrates life, enchantment, and the special corners of heaven. A mother and her two daughters are on a walk in the forest, when the mother, who has recently buried her father, spies a dragonfly. It is well known, she explains, that dragonflies carry angels on their backs; it is why dragonflies have an extra set of wings. The girls surmise that it must be their grandfather and a special habit begins, in which the three know in their heart that when a dragonfly nears it is a very special angel visiting them.
