Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is a guide to help answer many questions about how and why the leaves that fall from trees look and feel differently. Included in the book is a suggested activity of going on a leaf hunt that includes a checklist of what to wear and bring along for the adventure. Next is an explanation on how to create an ID card system to use for each leaf found and how to record the information. Full color pictures are included to help identify the leaves, the trees, and a brief history of different ways the leaves have been used in the past. Suggested activities on how to display the leaves are scattered throughout the guide. Twenty full-color stickers of different leaves are also included for use to help keep track of leaves that have been found. The end of the guide includes plenty of extra blank pages to write various notes about what was found on an adventure hike. This is a simple and fun, yet fact-filled book that is an ideal tool to help introduce an interest in nature to young children. 2002, Grosset & Dunlap,
