Author/illustrator Mia Posada, whose other ecological picture-books include Guess What Is Growing Inside This Egg and Who Was Here?: Discovering Wild Animal Tracks, turns to the subject of deciduous leaves and the transformation they undergo throughout the year in this informative new offering. A simple and easily understood explanation of the changing colors of such leaves, and what this means, is paired with lovely cut paper and watercolor illustrations that capture the beauty of each season. An afterword gives more information, as well as a glossary and links to three leaf-related experiments children can do...

Summer Green to Autumn Gold: Uncovering Leaves' Hidden Colors is the first book I have read from Posada, but it will certainly not be the last! Both informative and aesthetically appealing, it was enjoyable enough that I intend to track down more titles from its creator. I thought the simple explanations offered in the main narrative were clear, and would work for children of a variety of ages, while the afterword gave more detailed information that might interest slightly older children. For my own part, I thought that the information about some of the other pigments - the anthocyanins that produce red and purple colors, the carotenoids that produce the yellow and orange, the tannins that produces the brown - was the most interesting, as books of this nature often only mention chlorophyll. Recommended to young science and nature lovers, and to anyone seeking picture-books explaining photosynthesis and the changing colors of fall foliage. ( )
