Learn about the magical process of how leaves change their color with this Let's-Read-and-Find-Out picture book. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 4 to 6. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.
