If You Find a Leaf

by Aimée Sicuro is a stunning book that celebrates the leafy beauty of autumn. As the trees start to shed, a child picks up leaves of all different shapes, sizes, and colors and lets the imagination run wild. With a little dreaming, leaves can take many forms, from “a hat on a chilly day” to a boat, a parachute, a fire, or a blanket. Sicuro’s sparse, poetic words capture a child’s sense of wonder and really let the beautiful illustrations shine.
