Product Description:

PreS-Gr. 1. Colourful linoleum block prints of autumn leaves flutter across the pages of this attractive picture-book introduction to eight common leaf varieties. Gerber's poetic text describes colours, shapes, and characteristics with an abundance of similes and metaphors. The red maple's leaf is said to be "flame bright and vivid as a match"; the birch leaf is "oval as an egg"; and the ginkgo's yellow leaf is shaped "just like a little fan." Evans' vibrant hand-coloured linoleum prints feature scenes of a brother and sister with the family dog enjoying traditional fall activities, such as raking a big pile of leaves and jumping in. They also provide helpful visual aid for youngsters who might want to try some leaf identification of their own. An ending page describes the process by which leaves change from green to their brilliant fall colours, adding to the book's value as a science resource. Lauren Peterson
