We have been enjoying the last few days of the warm weather with walks in the various parks around our city. Savouring all of the beautiful fall colours just as the breeze gently plucks away the leaves.
The Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert uses these exact blown away leaves to create characters and a storyline. I enjoy the collage work in all her books. This one though is special. It captures all the colours of fall and locks it in a book, so beautiful to see and read. The children were just so occupied looking at all the different leaf creatures.
I did scan this artwork for keepsake.
Along side the Leaf Man we also looked at this book. Again truly wonderful ideas on using leaves.
