I haven’t gotten very many picture book review requests, and I wish I’d get more. I’m in the camp that there is no age cutoff for a good book- picture book or not. Leaf, in particular, has some gorgeous illustrations and an important storyline. The animals who encounter Leaf have never met a polar bear before and are afraid of this strange creature. They name him Leaf (because they don’t know his name) and avoid him at all costs. One day the crows decide to talk to him and discover he has ended up there due to global warming. Besides the environmental message, this story encourages empathy toward strangers. 

 I read a DRC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
