Little Kid Reaction

The kids thought the leaves were beautiful and colorful. They liked that a new tree grew after the leaves fell off the tree. They made a connection with the tree because they like swinging in trees. They asked to read the story again.

Big Kid Reaction

I liked the book because my kids enjoyed it. This was a wonderful book: very interesting and educational. I wished it could have been longer.

Type of Book:
This is a picture book about the cycle of life.

The story makes it easy to talk about the natural cycle of life, both literally (like a tree) and as a broader concept. Leaf's adventures also give you the opportunity to draw out specific vignettes (like loss, friendship, choices).
