Leaf Jumpers

Leaf Jumpers” by Carole Gerber

“We watch a soft wind shake the trees. It lifts the leaves and sets them free. Released, they flutter through the air, drifting downward gracefully…Red maple’s broad and pointed leaves flame bright and vivid as a match. The sugar maple’s leaves are orange, like pumpkins in a pumpkin patch. Stubby fingers, brown as dirt, reach from the slender white oak leaf.”

This is a great fall book which shows pictures of many of the different deciduous tree leaves and the colors they turn before falling onto the ground.
