Ever wonder what it's like to float along the autumn breeze, to see the world and the contents below in a constant state of movement and change? Well then take a seat, open up this book and enjoy the ride.
Composed of leaf collages, Leaf Man, by Lois Ehlert tells the story of man made of leaves and his journey over the earth's landscape and the wonderful sights he sees as well as the friends he makes.
Aside from being visually stimulating and highly creative, Leaf Man is interactive. All throughout the book the horizon changes from scene to scene, but what is so engaging is that the pages of the book are actually cut to mimic the same horizon line Leaf Man is also seeing.
The story itself is simple, but the visuals more thank make up for it and are packed with inspiration to go out and make leaf men and animals of your own!
Not to mention the great catalogue of leaf types that covers the front and back sections of the book. This book is perfect for fall, and for learning about the falling and changing leaves. I couldn't help but go on a leaf hunting adventure the moment I closed the book!
Which is why we want to give away a copy of this delightful story!
