My son loves this series and the Magic School Bus series. This series is less detailed than the Magic School Bus series but still informative. This book is colorful, it takes you through the seasons and talks about the trees and the leaves in each season. There are a two activities at the end of the book that help kids pay attention to leaves. Overall it is a light introduction to the process.
I home school my daughter and we found this book last year. Great for talking about the seasons. Beautiful pictures and she can even tell you what leaves belong with which tree now. Great ideas for projects at home in the back.
