Discover the magic—and the science—behind fall leaves with this companion to the celebrated Raindrops Roll and Best in Snow.
With gorgeous photo illustrations, award-winning author April Pulley Sayre explores the transformation trees undergo in fall. The book takes readers through the leaves’ initial change from green to red, yellow, and orange, the shedding of the leaves, and the leaves crumbling as winter approaches. Extensive back matter explains the science behind this process to the youngest of budding scientists.
Insects take center stage in this follow-up to the wildly popular, Trout, Trout, Trout! (A Fish Chant). Whether you love bugs or hate’em you won’t be able to resist chanting this rowdy text. Bold and clever illustrations turn creepy-crawlies into hilarious, endearing creatures that will make even the most hardened non-bug-lover laugh and loud. And budding entomologists will love the end matter, chock-full of factual information about insects.
