A Few Reviews:

“Why do leaves change color in fall/autumn? This book addresses this question in a manner that is fun and simplified for younger kids, ages 4-8. The illustrations are a highlight, depicting the rich autumnal colors in all their vibrant hues. A boy and his mom go outdoors for a walk and are depicted exploring nature, with the curious young boy asking his mom questions about why leaves lose their original color in fall. Terms such as chlorophyll and compost are used but defined in a simple manner and there is also a glossary at the back. In addition, there is a list of additional titles for further reading and even a craft activity involving making leaves window art. This is a perfect read for fall, and would make a nice addition to a classroom/school library.” – Amazon Reviewer Z. Hayes

“This is an engaging book that introduces autumn leaves in a simple way. It touches on difficult concepts like chlorophyll and decomposition but does not go into great detail about them. I would recommend this as a first book in an autumn leaves unit where you plan to read a little more about those topics. For my 2 year old, she did not get those, but there were plenty of parts she did connect with (taking a walk to look at leaves, raking, playing”  – Amazon Reviewer S. Dileonardo
