Although the rain in the North Country may make it feel more like April than the Autumn Equinox, signs of the season are all around us. If you have children in your life – be they your own or young grovelings – you should consider adding the book Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert to your collection.
Told from the perspective of a child, it explains the life cycle of a maple tree and celebrates the seasonal changes. Included are ideas to inspire – leaf rubbings, pressed leaves, and ways to feed birds in the winter. The illustrations, created with mixed-media collages, are sure to delight.
