Award-winning author/illustrator John Sandford’s Oak Leaf is an artistic picture book about an autumn leaf’s journey that beautifully evokes the season.
A lone autumn leaf falls and flies away on a breeze. It travels up and over the world and down again—where it finally lands on the page of a little girl’s open book and becomes a keepsake.
“Written with a quiet poeticism.” —Kirkus Reviews
