This is Kaitlyn's favorite so far this year. She loves the bouncy rhymes in this book.

When the Leaf Blew In by Steve MetzgerWhen The Leaf Blew In
Metzger is a well-known, popular author. This is a funny book with a cause/effect theme in it.

This has fiction and nonfiction mixed together. This is about the cycle of leaves throughout the year, so a great science-focus book.

A funny, silly book with a familiar character--the swallowing lady :)
