What a delightful illustrated book. This is a story of leaves in the shape of a man. As the wind blows him along, he finds animals and other items in the shape of leaves. The pages are not typical and are in various shapes.

Creative, unique and very special, I highly recommend this lovely illustrated book.

A delightful and beautiful look at where the wind takes the leaves.

Leaf Man is such a unique and interesting children's book. The author uses leaves as all of her illustrations, for example all of the animals and creatures in the book are made out of leaves. It is such a creative method of illustrating a children's book; one that I've never seen before. This adds to the celebration of nature that this book provides. Any child would love reading this book as children love playing and exploring outside, and that is the feeling evoked by Ehlert's picture book. ( )

Created by scanned images of leaves the author/illustrator actually collected from the ground, the story is told of a man made of leaves who is blown away by the wind. The leaf man passes by many creatures (also made of leaves) and is left wondering where he will end up.

Beautiful pages, and the front and back covers have photographs of leaves identified by the kind of tree they came from (which is something I'm particularly interested in). I love leaves. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

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 Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:19:22 -0400)

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