Autumn Leaves by Ken Robbins is a nonfiction book for young readers ages two and up. I initially picked up this book at the library because of the front cover. The cover of four leaves in fall colors and the title also written in autumn colors against a white background is striking.
Upon opening the book, I discovered page after page of beautiful photographs of trees in all their fall splendor. Almost every page also includes a picture of the leaf of a specific tree. Young children will love learning about the different shapes and colors of different leaves with this book. Furthermore, this book would be a great reference companion for a nature walk.
Final Verdict: Autumn Leaves is a beautifully illustrated photo-essay book chock full of information about leaves for young readers. I highly recommend this book to any child who is interested in nature.
