Another cool entry in the "ways of seeing" board books from the Whitney Museum (see also: Find Colors; These Colors Are Bananas).

Just right for fall reading either one-on-one or with a small group, this board book offers a unique experience. With only a preface containing words, the book opens to reveal see-through pages that form a leaf pile. Readers turn the pages, removing one layer of leaves at a time and discovering interesting things hiding in the leaves. There is a worm, ants, a mitten, a key, a grasshopper and more. Beautifully, the leaves continue to pile on the pages to the left, creating a new pile to explore. ...more

This is another clever book by Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin. It features see-through pages, so that when you open the book you see just a pile of colorful leaves. When you turn each page you find details that will surprise you, like ants, a lost key, or a lone mitten. Super fun book for the baby in your life.

Cool board book (perfect for fall). Each of the pages is see-through with a different leaf/color over the top. It's virtually wordless, so you could talk about each leaf in the pile with descriptive language.

Interesting presentation of a pile of mixed leaves presented in see through pages with several other items found in the pile. Plus points for the two end pages which identify the leaves by shape.

Fun and brilliant exploration of a pile of leaves for little ones! (I think it would appeal to a variety of ages, too... toddlers and up!)
