Books for Children

This was an excellent book. I purchased it for my granddaughter who is seven. She was delighted with it. This book was very educational in a very fun way.

A homeschool must!

I read this book with my children before we started homeschooling, and found I learned a lot myself. This would be a great book to use for homeschool science in the fall along with some books on animal hibernation and bird migration. I would recommend it for kids even up to 4th or 5th grade who don't know what makes leaves change.

Why Do Leaves Change Color?

This is a question every elementary child asks their parent or teacher. Don't know the answer? Read this cute book and you will find out! A great book to teach one science concept of fall. Do leaf rubbings of leaves collected on a walk and you and your child will have a great afternoon of learning. Excellent text and pictures.

Explaining fall

I used this book this semester while student teaching with a Kinder class. The kids really loved the illustrations, and the explanation of why the leaves fall. They were fascinated with the explanation of the pigment for red, yellow, and orange already being there. I'd reccomend it with older children too, as they might enjoy the science behind it even more, and there's more opportunities to actually have them describe the leaves and observe leaves in a section the way the book shows us we can.

Fairly detailed book for early elementary children.

I have this book in my preschool classroom, but it is not one that I read at storytime. We use it as a resource when one child begins to question how or why the leaves change color. It is a helpful resource for me as an adult to understand the process, yet in simple language and with pictures to make it interesting for children.
