leaf is more than just a simple part of a tree. Many of a leaf's uses
are described in simple rhyming pairs such as, "skin welter, bat
shelter. shade spiller, mouth filler". The cute illustrations add some
character to the minimal text while displaying a variety of shades of
greens and browns that are befitting to a book about leaves. As a bonus,
at the end of the book there are a few pages giving more detailed
information for each statement. This is great as it makes this picture
book accessible to a wider range of ages.
