This wonderfully colorful book depicted the life cycle of the leaves in the trees. It explained what cells and chloroplasts are, and even chlorophyll. It went on to describe the life cycle of the leaves and how when it becomes fall, the chlorophyll stops producing, since the tree’s life cycle is ending. The leaves change color because the chlorophyll has stopped producing the color green, and eventually in the winter the trees sleep. In the spring, new buds start to sprout, all filled with new chlorophyll, and the cycle begins again. 

I would highly recommend for anyone to read, as it is a great introduction to the seasons and how trees are affected by them. Learning about chloroplasts and chlorophyll was so fun, and the author made it easily digestible. The illustrations were beautiful too, especially the pages filled with various types of leaves. On each page, the text of the book would change colors or highlight colors to match what it was trying to say, which was very helpful. Overall a wonderful book about the seasons and the tree
