After the Fall is a lesson on how to face and overcome fears. The tale picks
up where the famous Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme leaves off, and it
takes readers on an authentic journey with an unexpected and inspired end.
The story will surprise and delight young readers, and the module will
encourage students to find peace in the midst of their worries while
stretching their wings as learners.
