Back of Book: Autumn is time for the leaves to change colors. Get out your rake and help gather the fallen leaves. Find out why leaves change color. And take a running leap into that huge pile of leaves!
Autumn is my favorite season. I love reading my students all kinds of picture books about the fall season. This is a great real aloud that teaches children the science behind why the leaves change colors, then fall to the ground. I loved that the story is about a young boy and the walk that he and his mother go on to look at the leaves. The illustrations are soft, and perfectly represent the changing seasons. This is a perfect book to share with children on the first day of Autumn. It is a great story for pre-school or Kindergarten.
