Autumn Leaves by Ken Robbins (Illustrator)
This book is a colorful photo-essay of a fall nature walk. It is an
album of autumn leaves, shown life-size and in their changing colors.
The author shares photos of leaves and the trees that they came from.
The book's text is simply
worded and informative:
leaves have veins. The veins of some leaves are quite easy to see."
last page offers a short explanation of photosynthesis, using
scientific terms for the chemicals that make the leaves turn colors,
i.e., chlorophyll and anthocyanin. The author's work demonstrates his
careful observation and reverence for nature.
