We'll read two stories about leaves this week: Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson and A Leaf Can Be... by Laura Purdie Salas. In Fletcher and the Falling Leaves, Fletcher the fox is worried as his favorite tree begins to lose its leaves during autumn. Squirrel and Porcupine try to teach Fletcher that these falling leaves are helpful, but Fletcher worries that his beloved tree is ill. However, he wakes up one morning to find that his tree has instead gone through a beautiful transition.
A Leaf Can Be.... is a rhyming picture book that introduces all the many different things a leaf can be to the planet and all its inhabitants; "Air cleaner," "Earth greener," and "Snake concealer." The last pages of the book offer further explanations of how a leaf helps us all, a glossary of terms and suggestions for further reading.
Both these books are beautifully illustrated (Tiphanie Beeke illustrated Fletcher and the Falling Leaves and Violeta Dabija illustrated A Leaf Can Be...) and are excellent books for sharing in a storytime or one-on-one.
