Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf

by Lois Ehlert

Published by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1991
36 pages
ISBN: 0-15-266197-2

Ages 3 - 5

burst of brilliant red and yellow hues on the cover and end papers of this 10 1/4" square volume celebrates the natural beauty of the sugar maple tree. Collages incorporating a variety of materials including seeds, roots, fabric, ribbon, wire, paper, plastic, cardboard, watercolors, crayons, pencils, pens, and oil pastels create a strong textural sense, which is enhanced by the actual embossing of a leaf pictured on the book jacket. The brief text, printed in large, bold typeface, traces the growth of a sugar maple from seed to nursery to flourishing maturity in a child's yard. An expanded glossary at the book's close provides additional information to be shared with children. Thoughtfully planned and beautifully executed throughout, no detail is omitted--even to directions for making a birdseed treat on the back jacket flap. CCBC categories: The Natural World; Activities; Seasons And Celebrations.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
