Cayden’s comments:

“The little leaf in this book is named Deciduous.  He wants to stay on the tree to see Christmas.  That is pretty hard for a leaf to do, to stay on a tree that long because they change colors and fall down.  Every holiday he sees he thinks is Christmas – like the 4th of July and Halloween, but they aren’t Christmas yet.  All of his friends fall down.  He really wants to make it though.  I liked this book and all of the different leaves that lived on the tree.  After we read the book, my brother and I looked outside on our trees and we see two in our backyard that have a couple of leaves on them.  I think that those leaves are trying to hang on to the tree until Christmas.  They even held on during a really bad snowstorm.  I hope they make it.”

Parent’s comments:

“The Little Leaf” is such a great, thought-provoking book.  My son enjoyed the story and I truly hope that the leaves in our backyard can hold on until Christmas as he checks out the window everyday to see if they are still there.
