Leaves Author David Ezra Stein
A great book to introduce the youngest of readers to changes in the environment around them . With the innocence and vocabulary that a toddler can understand , reading this book allows all readers to experience the wonder of childhood the way a child does .
This is a simple , charming story of a young bear ’ s first autumn . Bear is surprised when he sees leaves falling off the trees , but when he tries to reattach them , it doesn ’ t work . Eventually , he gets sleepy , and burrows into the fallen leaves for a long nap . When he awakes , it ’ s spring and all around him is a sea of new leaves , seemingly to welcome him .
The Earth Book Author Todd Parr

A perfect book to introduce young readers to recycling and caring for their environment . We love how each page highlights an activity the reader can do to save the earth , and also connects these activities with a reason that children can relate to – “ I turn off the water while I brush my teeth because I love fish and I want the oceans to stay blue .”
As with other books by Parr , The Earth Book is a delight in pictures and words . The simple text and brightly coloured illustrations make this a very kid-friendly book that young readers would read over and over again . Developmentally , young children are just beginning to be aware that they are part of a much larger world , and this book empowers them to know that they too can make a difference .
