The Leaves on the Trees is an interesting read. It is written in the style of the song, The Wheels on the Bus. I think my girls liked that part the most. Some of the lines repeat (like in the song) so it is good to read with young readers. I like that it introduces children to different types of leaves and what happens to those leaves when Autumn comes. I think it is a good and quick story to read with children for when Autumn starts.
