When Mrs. Connor's class learns that in some states leaves do not change color in the fall, the children offer to share their own plentiful supply of autumn leaves. They choose their favorite yellow, orange, and red ones; sort them by type of tree; glue them onto paper; pack them up; and ship them off to a first-grade class in the Southwest. Mr. Soto's students open the package and decorate their classroom with the colorful leaves. The text is suitably short and generally simple, though several of the children's names seem difficult for beginning readers to sound out. Gordon's cartoonlike ink drawings set an upbeat tone, washed with colors reminiscent of an overcast fall day. From the Ready-to-Read series featuring the children at Robin Hill School, this book will be a fresh addition to units on fall leaves.
