I read this book to my class each year in first grade because we study trees. The children are always amazed at the images that are created by simply arranging the leaves. The book is interesting because the images are large on the page and the pages themselves are curved at the top rather than the standard rectangular shape. The story is a great mentor text for a leaf study and we always create our own Leaf Man with leaves that are collected from the school yard in the fall. ( )

This fall story shows leaf man drifting along with the wind wherever it blows. There is beautiful fall scenery!

A delightful book of fall colors and texture this book focus on the journey of the leaf man and where the wind might take him. With the turn of each irregularly cut page the reader is moved over mountain and hillsides with the leaves and the leaves take on new designs with each page. First, the leaves become chickens, later the leaves transform into fish and butterflies. Ehlert causes to look beyond the pile of leaves to the shapes that lie within and the Leaf Man that is waiting for each of you if you look. ( )

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.

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.
