Leaf Jumpers

by Carole Gerber
Illustrated by Leslie Evans

Published by Charlesbridge, 2004
32 pages
ISBN: 1-57091-497-4

Ages 4 - 8

Changing colors of autumn leaves is certainly one of the most flamboyant hallmarks of a new season. Linoleum-cut illustrations show two children and a dog playing among the falling leaves, as the poetic text describes the characteristics of eight types of trees. "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." A concluding page outlines the scientific process behind leaf color change, but it is the bold illustrations and lyrical words throughout the rest of this picture book that truly celebrate the season.
