As the leaves on the trees go from green to red and gold, two curious squirrels embrace the change of seasons!

When he wakes up one morning to find that his home tree is changing, the little squirrel is scared! Why are all the leaves falling off?
Quickly he corrals his sister and they gather up the leaves in colorful pawfuls. But try as they may to stick them back on the branches, it's hopeless: Yellow, orange, red, and brown, all the leaves keep falling down!
It's only when their wise mama explains what happens in autumn that the two little squirrels understand the seasons are changing. Green leaves will sprout anew in spring!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
A fresh breeze blows through the woodland, and Pip Squirrel watches autumn arrive. Pip loves every inch of the oak tree where he dwells, from the twigs to the trunk. But what is happening to the tree? Why are the leaves changing colors and falling off? In his determination to solve this mystery, Pip carefully watches the tree and observes the green leaves transforming into a sea of yellow, orange, and red. What will happen to the tree if all the leaves fall off? Pip and his sister, Blossom, collect the leaves in a pile and place them back on the branches. But with each gust of wind, the leaves blow off again. Mom tells her children the tree has to lose its leaves. When spring comes, the tree will be filled with beautiful green leaves again. Pip, Blossom, and Mom play under the oak tree until sunset. Finally Pip realizes why the leaves are so beautiful; they are the color of the sunset. In Leaf Trouble, children can experience autumn from a young squirrel's point of view. The beautiful illustrations will enchant young and old readers alike. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—Pip Squirrel's first fall finds him confused and concerned: his family's oak tree is falling apart. The leaves have changed from summer green to yellow, red, and orange and are fluttering to the ground. He elicits his sister's help to gather them and stick them back on the branches. Mom Squirrel patiently, but erroneously, explains that "taking care of the leaves was hard work for the tree…it needed to rest awhile" and that the leaves will return in the spring. Pip likens the leaves coming and going to the sun setting and rising. Even though their mother's explanation is incorrect, her children are satisfied with her account and are pleased that, come spring, their home will begin to look the way it used to. The colorful and endearing ink illustrations, placed in a layered collage using a variety of textures and perspectives, are a delight. One minor quibble: one spread is so dark that the text is difficult to read. The cozy pictures are the book's highlight, and children will be attracted to them.—Maryann H.
