It's a young bear's first autumn, and the falling leaves surprise him. He tries to put them back on the trees, but it doesn't work. Eventually, he gets sleepy, and burrows into the fallen leaves for a long nap. When he wakes up, it's spring—and there are suddenly brand-new leaves all around, welcoming him.

Graceful illustrations and a childlike main character offer the perfect way to talk to children about the wonder of the changing seasons.

This book is about a bear who is desperately confused as to why the leaves are falling, until he gets tired, holes up and falls asleep all winter, and when he wakes up, new leaves are coming out. Lovely illustrations and a fun story. Read full review
