Book talk Tuesday – We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt

Today I'm linking up with Mrs. Jump's Class for Book talk Tuesday. Every year, this book finds a permanent place on my classroom bookshelf for the entire autumn season. My students love Going on a Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger.  

This book is perfect for preschoolers because it takes a story that they are already familiar with, and gives it an autumn twist. They are easily able to retell the story to themselves or each other after hearing me read it a few times. The pictures are also colorful, attractive and very descriptive. Books like this give young readers confidence in their beginning skills, making reading fun. 

I also love that it names specific trees, and the illustrations include the features of each of those trees, but the best thing about this book is that it is from Scholastic, and is currently featured in their September flier, so you can get a copy for your class for free with book order points!
