    This is less a story and more a stream of consciousness. It invites discussion while reading. It also has an excellent resource/read aloud section in the back that covers the things "a leaf can be" in depth.

    This could be an excellent way to introduce multiple types of science and EE lessons.

    This is a good book to use with kids just learning to read (average 1st-2nd grade reader), or to use for illustrations' sake with younger kids or lower level readers. I like the rhyme scheme that follows the progression of season changes. Very creative possible 'job descriptions' for leaves, and the illustrations have a soothing, dreamlike feel. It's a nice 'zone-out' book when a sleepy kid needs just enough visual stimulation to get hooked, but not too much story line to re-energize her/him.

    A beautiful, lyrical view of a leaf. A wonderful, first-nature book for children. Terrific for a kindergarten library.

    This deceptively simple picture book is stunningly beautiful with soft, whimsical illustrations that are almost primitive in style. The rhyming text lists many different uses for leaves from the obvious; tree-topper, to the more obscure; moth matcher. This book is ideal as a springboard to discussion and the notes at the back will help adults explain the more difficult concepts. Highly recommended for picture book collections but equally at home in a non-fiction collection.

    A Leaf Can Be is a vividly colored picture book about what role leaves play in our lives and the world around use. The book is rhyming, and it goes through all of the things that a leaf can do; provide shade, provide piles to jump in in the fall, and so on. The subjects of what they book can be roughly follow the seasons, and the colors in the pages follow this accordingly, with the first pages being a vivid green that fade to an autumnal orange-brown. The end of the book concludes with the narrator asking the reader what else they think a leaf can be, and then it has a short section in paragraph form explaining some facts about leaves and trees.The art in this book is beautiful and captivating, and it would definitely catch the mind and imagination of a young child when read with a parent. This book would be a good addition to any libraries that cater to elementaries, although it may not be as applicable in schools in very hot dry places, such as Arizona or New Mexico.

    Beautiful Verse Detailing the Life of a LeafA Leaf Can Be…. is a beautiful story of the many things that leaves do in the world. The pictures are beautiful and the information presented in such a way that allows for learning and discussion. The verses are restful and informative. The text is too difficult for beginning readers, but the ideas beneficial for K-2 learning. It could also be used in classes to supplement science lessons on trees or the environment by including beautiful poetry and illustrations. Received Galley from NetGalley.com
