Formed in a pile of leaves is a figure that resembles a man. On a gusty day, Leaf Man blows away. The storyteller wonders where Leaf Man goes and shows various scenes of where he could possibly have blown if he went east, west, north or south. One thing is for sure. Leaf Man goes where the wind blows. Much of the illustrations are creatively made out of leaves and include ducks, geese, chickens, turkey, birds, cows, turtle, fish, butterflies, dog, mouse, trees and a variety of fruits and vegetables. Included are pictures of different leaves and where they come from. My Book Eyes will always remember school bulletin boards filled will leaf art inspired by this picture book. Ms. Ehlert will be missed.
