The leaves in the trees are falling down in this autumn-themed 8x10 picture book!

THE LEAVES ON THE TREES revels in the sights, sounds, smells, and general feeling of the autumn leaves.

Based on the classic song, "The Wheels on the Bus," THE LEAVES ON THE TREES explores all types of trees making the magical transformation from the green leaves of summer to fascinating foliage of fall. - quoted from Goodreads

Just in time for Fall, this adorably illustrated story shows kids about the variety of brightly colored leaves that fall from the various trees around them. This is a fun story that engages kids as the story can easily be sang or read to the tune of The Wheels on the Bus. This is a great addition for any home, preschool or early elementary school classes, as kids learn more about fall, their colors and different types of leaves.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
