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.

This is a book about all of the leaves and how they form into leaf man. I would use this book in the fall to help teach about leaves and the fall season. Appropriate for grades 1-3.

This book is about the leaf man. The leaf man travels whenever and where ever the wind blows him, across the mountains and the hills, the leaf man has been everywhere. I liked the book because of the unique pages and how the leaves were displayed. It was a good book to read and the grade level would be 2-3rd grade.

I am a huge fan of Red leaf Yellow Leaf, so when I saw this book I knew that it had to be great! I love how the leafs are collaged into the shape of a man, and that we get to embark on his journey of blowing in the wind to various places. This book is great to talk about Fall/Autumn with children, the changing of the leafs colors, how they end up in so many places because they are carried by the elements, and it also alows the children to get an up close look at the many varieties of leafs there are. I am excited to add this to my classroom collection!

The Leaf Man is a man who goes where the wind blows and where the leaves are. The coolest part about this book is that the illustrations used were made of real color copies of leaves that the author had collected in the fall season. It is a fun and colorful exploration of the fall season with cutout pages adding to the effect of the story ie "through the mountains," "across the river," and "across the wheat fields." ( )

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 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.
