Leaves Board book
July 29, 2010
by David Ezra Stein (Author, Illustrator)
This simple, charming story of a young bear's first autumn is perfectly suited to board book format. Bear is surprised when the leaves start falling off the trees, but when he tries to reattach them, it doesn't work. Eventually, he gets sleepy, and burrows into the fallen leaves for a long nap. When he wakes up, it's spring-and there are suddenly brand-new leaves all around, seeming to welcome him. With its childlike main character and graceful illustrations, Leaves is a great way to teach the youngest children about the changing seasons.

Filled with the recognizable images of a brisk fall day, this charming board book takes toddlers on an autumn adventure. Whether observing squirrels gathering nuts, dodging falling leaves, or splashing in puddles, children will delight in the vivid images while they learn about the world around them. Bright illustrations and simple yet engaging text help young readers develop vocabulary and improve language skills. "Slegers's characteristically vivid and whimsical illustrations bring charm to these board books. . . . These books offer just the right balance of comfort and excitement for the youngest readers." —School Library Journal
