Down Come the Leaves

Down Come the Leaves

Title: Down Come the Leaves

Author: Henrietta Bancroft

Illustrator:  Nonny Hogrogian


In this classic, sweet book, Ms. Bancroft poetically presents the story of nature’s continuity with the falling of the leaves each autumn.  Most leaves fall in autumn because their work, making food for the tree, is finished.  Readers learn that new leaves will grow in the spring, starting the cycle over again.  Simply and beautifully illustrated, it is sure to capture the attention of young nature watchers.
