I found this to be a poorly done riff of "We're Going on a Bear Hunt"... no real story or substance and the illustrations are just okay. If you're looking for a book about leaves I'm not even sure this is it, since it only teaches you about three kinds throughout the book. It's not a terrible book... but it's just not that great either.
