This week we have enjoyed the story Leaf Man, by author and illustrator Lois Ehlert.

This wonderful Autumn themed story describes the journey of the ‘Leaf Man’ as the wind takes him to lots of new places, making lots of new friends.

The Leaf Man is formed from a variety of beautiful Autumn leaves with acorns for eyes. The children have enjoyed exploring the meanings of new words. Each page provided an exciting surprise as to where the Leaf Man had travelled to next and what he saw. The children looked closely at the pictures to find lots of different creatures amongst the leaves. We had a go at making our own Leaf Art using a variety of natural objects we had collected in and around our forest area.
