I really enjoyed this book much more than I anticipated! This is a fictional story about a mommy bear and a baby bear going on leaf walks. This book contains alot of scientific facts, yet it is designed for younger children to understand. This book would be perfect for K-2nd grade students. This would be a great introduction to teaching the seasons and some of the subtle characteristics about each season. I love the quirky jokes that the baby bear comes up with after he creates an understanding

This is a science book for young people from K-2 grades. Buddy Bear plays outside in the Spring and Mama takes him on a leaf walk. The leaf walk involves finding leaf buds and learning about how the buds will grow into leaves. There are science tools used in their observations such as a magnifying glass, colored pencils and ziplock bags. During the summer, Mama and Buddy actually collect leaves, observe the difference in leaves, parts of leaves and the trees they are taken from. Buddy and Mama d ...more

This is a very scientific book, which is what I really liked about it. I love introducing science to my students in ways that can be engaging to them. I would have definitely used this if I were still teaching the 4 and 5 year olds and we were doing a unit on leaves. I really liked the big tree diagram at the end.

The only problem is this book is a bit long. If I were to use it, I'd worry the kids would lose interest fast.

Unfortunately, I'm teaching three year olds and I don't t

Adorable book. Ashley introduced this book to me in our fine arts for teachers class. I thought it would be great to share with students during the fall or whenever we are discussing trees and the change in seasons. To add to the lesson, Ashley told us to pass out different leaves to allow the children to see different kinds, shapes,and sizes. I would consider taking the students on a nature walk. She then would have the children trace the leaves and give them materials such as crepe paper and c ...more

Mama Bear and Buddy Bear enjoy going on walks throughout every season. As the go on their walks, Buddy Bear notices that the leaves are different as the seasons change. Mama Bear explains to Buddy why the leaves look the way they do.This is a very informative book for children yet it is enjoyable at the same time. It is great for children in a classroom and will help them understand the differences between the seasons.There are two different activities at the end of the book that could be used w ...more
Good story. It reminds me of the kindergarteners going a leaf walks in the park 2-3 times during the school year. The story is set so that Buddy Bear and his mother take a walk during each of the 4 seasons and look at the leaves. The story is good but a bit scientiifical for the kindergarteners but a bit young for say 4-5th grades. Nancy Eliabeth Wallace has a few books similar to this one - Rocks! Rocks! Rocks! and Seeds! Seeds! Seeds! I do like Buddy Bear.

Buddy Bear and his mother go on leaf walks each season and Buddy learns about leaves and how they change.

Collin enjoyed learning about what happens to leaves throughout the different seasons. He is a little young to grasp all of the information but he enjoyed the book and a lot of it registered.

We enjoyed our own leaf walk after reading this book.

Buddy Bear and Mama go 'leaf walking' throughout the four seasons, and gather a lot of information about trees and leaves in the process. Factual information is at the back of the book.

Used for "Fall for Pumpkins" Storytime-October, 2009.

"Leaves! Leaves! Leaves!" is a story of a little bear and its mother going out seasonally to collect leaves. The story itself is appropriate for the age group but the science explained is very complex and is told in a way that supports a much older group of children.

This also a great book to use when teaching the changes that you may see in the fall season. This book is filled with great pictures that students can easily connect to.

A great informative book about leaves. I even learned (or refreshed) about leaves.

I absolutely love this book (and I want it for my classroom)! It is great to talk about why the leaves change color! I would also take my students on a "leaf" walk to look at the leaves each season
