The small pale-green leaf wanted to see everything; the flowers budding, the pond reflecting the sky's color, and the beauty of spring. Slowly the days turned warmer and the leaves grew bigger. Children started playing, the birds chirped, and the bees were busy working. The leaf hoped summer would last but when the days turned cooler, there were ripe apples, pumpkins, and bonfires. There was also music, people playing, and slowly the leaves started changing color and falling. The little leaf wondered where everyone was going and then it also dropped and landed on a soft earth mound. Winter had arrived and it was there to last the season. The little leaf would now become one with the ground until it springs to life again.
One Little Leaf by Jane Super is an adorable story of how the seasonal changes occur and is a lovely way to teach children how nature changes during each season. Stefanie St. Denis gives clarity to the concept with her charming and colorful illustrations, making it easy for children to understand the four seasons. I love the way the author as well as the illustrator give the little leaf its own personality and the power to reflect on the changes in nature. Just like the little leaf, children will also start becoming more observant of the seasonal changes around them after reading this book. The story is educational as well as informative and I would recommend it to tutors and parents to use for storytelling sessions. There couldn't be a better way to teach children about the seasons.
