This simple, charming story of a young bear’s first autumn is perfectly suited to board book format.

When he wakes up, it’s spring-and there are suddenly brand-new leaves all around, seeming to welcome him.
With its childlike main character and graceful illustrations, Leaves is a great way to teach the youngest children about the changing seasons.
