Have you ever wondered what it would be like if that feather we all watched gracefully dance in the wind to the theme of Forrest Gump got a story of its own?  What if that feather was an oak leaf that told a story just as beautifully as the feather, with the serene imagery of the changing seasons?  Oak Leaf paints a gorgeous picture with its words and illustrations, describing the simple, charming details of our world as it beds down to sleep for the winter.  If you've forgotten lately what it's like to experience a season other than winter, float away for a moment to a place with cool, fresh air, clear and bright skies, and the fantastic colors that come with autumn's arrival.

— From Anna Grace


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.
