Description

Prepare students for fall nature walks with this bright, informative celebration.

In a departure from his usual hand-tinted style, acclaimed photographer Ken Robbins lets the blazing colors of 13 North American deciduous trees shine without technical assistance. Robbins provides life-sized reproductions of leaves, shown clearly against a white background, making it easy to recognize their distinctive characteristics, and accompanies each leaf with a photograph of the tree or its branches in a natural setting.

Minimal text gives simple information and suggests references that help readers remember what they see: the fan-shaped leaves of the gingko were once eaten by dinosaurs; some sassafrass leaves look like mittens. The smoke tree, maple, linden, birch, yellow poplar, and fern are among the trees featured. A page on photosynthesis explains the mystery of autumn, using correct terminology to describe the natural chemicals that give the dying leaves their color.

A joy to open at any time of year, this useful resource will be welcomed by kids, parents, and teachers alike as a glorious celebration of fall.
