About the Book

Leaf Jumpers

This vibrant poem celebrates the beauty of autumn while inviting us all to go ahead and jump in that big, colorful, pile of fall leaves.

Leslie Evan’s bold artwork brings together gold, orange, yellow, red, and brown leaves into a literary pile creating the magic of autumn for young readers.

The poetic text gives simple facts about different types of fall leaves making it easy for readers to identify leaves ranging from  red maple to sycamore by color, shape, and other characteristics.

Informative and fun, Carole Gerber brings us a wonderful introduction to seasons and science for the earliest of leaf jumpers.

A Few Reviews:

“I read this book to a class of preschool children. They enjoyed it and were eager to share about times they’ve enjoyed playing in leaves. The illustrations are all in fall colors. The last page of the book includes individual photos of the leaves used in the book along with the names of the leaves. This page also explains why leaves turn colors. The same dog appears on some of the pages.” -Amazon Reviewer

“If a child struggles with the power of adjectives or the writing skill of designing his or her writing piece vividly create a visual picture in the reader’s mind, this book is a powerful tool. After I read it to my class aloud, in a small group center, I had them re-read and capture key words and/or phrases the author used to create a mental picture.”  – Amazon Reviewer
