Children’s book author Lisa Marie Bullard and illustrator Nadine Takvorian give children a simple lesson on autumn leaves in “Leaves Fall Down; Learning about Autumn Leaves”. The illustrations in this colorful book show different colored leaves and where you will find the changing colors.
Very basic information is provided but “Leaves Fall Down; Learning about Autumn Leaves” is a start for young children to learn about autumn leaves and to get children involved in the autumn season. The dialogue in the book is easy to read and fun for early readers.
I do have to admit this would not be one of my first choices for purchasing. My five year old grand daughter thought some of the illustrations were ugly and my eight year old grandson lost interest after a couple pages. We will be looking for a better book to learn about leaves but this is just our personal opinion, others may feel totally different.
