The theme of this book is exploration and trying new things. This book encourages its young readers to see nature in new ways. Leaves can be fun and have their own character traits! This is beautifully illustrated with pictures of real leaves that the author collected. Each page has really fun characters made out of leaves and nuts. This would be great to use as a precursor to a field trip or an outing with students to collect pieces of nature.

Very beautiful book showing the journey of a windblown leaf as well as the various ways you can use beautiful autumn leaves to make art. I loved this book!

I thought this book would be very useful in the fall. To use in a unit on leaves and have children make leaf collages. It has great pictures and is a good book for read alouds.

Very cool pictures formed by leaves. Tells the journey of where the wind blows a leaf. It shows subtle formations with leaves to match the words of the journey. It is just a nice book. It could be used for read aloud and a nice calming story or it could be used to initiate a nature study or a project with leaves in the fall. ( )

The illustrations in this book are very nice. They are vibrant and almost look life like. This story is about a "leaf man" who blows away. He goes wherever the wind blows him, traveling all over hillsides and down to ponds.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0152053042, Hardcover)

Fall has come, the wind is gusting, and Leaf Man is on the move. Is he drifting east, over the marsh and ducks and geese? Or is he heading west, above the orchards, prairie meadows, and spotted cows? No one's quite sure, but this much is certain: A Leaf Man's got to go where the wind blows.

With illustrations made from actual fall leaves and die-cut pages on every spread that reveal gorgeous landscape vistas, here is a playful, whimsical, and evocative book that celebrates the natural world and the rich imaginative life of children.

Includes an author's note and leaf-identifying labels.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:50:31 -0400)

A man made of leaves blows away, traveling wherever the wind may take him. On die-cut pages.
