Picture Book Review: Leaf Trouble by Jonathan Emmett

Looking for your next read? Check out Leaf Trouble by Jonathan Emmett, reviewed by Fulco Library staff, Kate L.

Pip is a young squirrel who’s about to experience Fall for the very first time in this sweet picture book. Waking up one morning, Pip has a feeling that something is very different about the tree that he lives in. It takes him a moment to realize what has changed and when he does, it gives him such a surprise that he falls out of the tree. But don’t worry, he’s okay. 

Pip can’t believe his eyes, seeing all the beautiful colors. Worried about the tree, he tries to put all the leaves back on the branches with the help of his sister, but as would happen, a big gust of wind blows them all down. With the enthusiasm of the young, the two squirrels start again, but their mom steps in and explains that it is okay for the tree to lose its leaves and get ready to rest for a bit. Hearing that the tree has no more need of the leaves, Pip and his family have a grand old time jumping and playing in the leaves.

This book is a prefect read for young children who are noticing the changes in nature for the first time and are curious about the ‘what’s and whys’ of Fall. Check out this story and other seasonal books from your local Fulton County library.
