Leaves are changing and it's time to read about fall! Our first story was Mouse's First Fall by Lauren Thompson, about a mouse and his friend playing outside in autumn. Then we read Leaves by David Ezra Stein, where a curious bear watches a tree change through the seasons. Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert was a beautiful book with pages and pages of animals and scenery all made with leaves! In our last book, Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rowlinson, we watched Fletcher trying to fix his favorite tree when the leaves began to fall from it.
With a brown paper trunk and branches and colorful tissue paper "leaves", many of us made beautiful fall trees for our craft.
