October Book of the Month: We're Going On A Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger

We're Going On A Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger
To the tune of We're Going on a Bear Hunt three friends hike, jump rocks, cross streams, go through a forest as they hunt for colorful leaves.  They identify different trees and leaves as they go on their adventure.  Great book to pair up with an actual leaf hunt or leaf rubbing.  We like this book in the fall where the trees are at their most colorful! How many colored leaves can your kids find?
