Leif and the fall  Cover Image Book Book

Leif and the fall / by Allison Sweet Grant and Adam Grant; illustrated by Merrilee Liddiard.

Grant, Allison Sweet, (author.). Grant, Adam, 1981- (author.). Liddiard, Merrilee, (illustrator.).


Leif is a leaf. A worried leaf. It is autumn, and Leif is afraid to fall. "All leaves fall in the fall," say the other leaves. But Leif is determined to find a different way down, and with his friend Laurel, he uses the resources around him to create a net, a kite, a parachute in hopes of softening his landing. The clock is ticking, the wind is blowing. What will happen when a gust of wind pulls Leif from his branch? In a culture that prizes achievement, kids are often afraid to fail - failing to realize that some of the very ideas that don't work are steps along the path to ones that will.-- Provided by publisher.
