Marzollo does it again! The text and illustrations in thisstory are highly supportive, so that even emergent readers can enjoythis book. Marzollo uses rhyme and repetition to follow the cycle ofa leaf through the four seasons. Very lively and informative, with bright and beautiful cut-paper illustrations...a must-read at home and school. Children who read this book will become well aware of leaves as indicators of the season changes, and more appreciative of their contibution to nature's canvas. I only wish the big book was available to use with my own students!
