It's a young bear's first autumn, and the falling leaves surprise him. He tries to put them back on the trees, but it doesn't work. Eventually, he gets sleepy and burrows into the fallen leaves for a long nap. When he wakes up, it's spring, and there are suddenly brand-new leaves all around, welcoming him.

Graceful illustrations and a childlike main character offer the perfect way to talk with children about the wonder of the changing seasons.

This very sweet story is a great read in the fall as well as in the spring when the leaves are just budding. It tells the story of a little bear is worried about the trees when they lose their leaves. Of course, there is a happy ending when he wakes up in spring to spring's new beginning. Suggested for preschool through grade 2.

A simple story with fantastic illustrations that show the transition from fall to winter to spring. A great book for those young ones learning about seasons.
