The Little Yellow Leaf


The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger, is one of our favorite fall reads. It is a simple beautifully written and equally beautifully illustrated children's book. The story is about a little yellow leaf that just isn't ready to drop from its branch. It hangs on as all the other leaves fall to the ground until it is the last leaf on the tree. This touches not just on the changing of the seasons but on how change in general can be hard. Berger is an award winning designer and illustrator and really delivers some unique illustrations in this book.The stiking illustrations are created using collage, making it a great book to pair with a study on collage art.
