Book of the Week GIVEAWAY: Designs for Coloring Leaves by Ruth Heller

Why we love this book:

My children are not much interested in coloring books. Last year when I found Designs for Coloring Leaves, I took a chance on what I felt was a more advanced and open ended coloring book. Ruth Heller’s design book features thirty-one original black line leaf illustrations.

Designs for Leaf Art by Children from waddleeahchaa.com

Last fall, my kiddos used Ruth Heller’s Leaf Designs to create mixed-media Leaf Art. The detailed leaf illustrations are especially nice for my South Texas kiddos who rarely get to experience a vibrant show of fall color. Quite a variety of leaf species are highlighted. Each leaf design begins with one great big leaf displayed on the page. The next page displays two leaves. The third page repeats the leaf design over and over again in small format. The pages are one sided, making them easy to color with crayons, markers, paint, pastels, etc.

The Next Few Weeks It’s All About Leaves

(FREE printables, Books, Activities, Songs)

Fall is in the air this cool, sunny morning. That’s my cue for a little learning fun with leaves. We don’t have a big, colorful changing of the leaves here in South Texas, but in about two hours we can make our way to Lost Maples for a breathtaking fall experience. Using our pictures from Lost Maples, I’ve put together a FREE printable book adapted from the song Going on a Picnic.

Teaching children how to write song adaptions is an excellent transition into independent reading and writing. Preschool, Kinder and First grade are perfect years to model how to write a song adaptation. First and Second grade is the time to turn children loose to write there own adaptations. It’s like an entry point into poetry writing. You can find the FREE printable book link at the end of this post.

My favorite tree is the weeping willow. :) But I absolutely love all trees’ fall colors! We don’t have a whole lot of color here in our part of GA yet.

Joanne Bell October 22, 2014 at 4:32 am

My favorite is the Sweet Gum tree with its many colors.

I love trees, no matter what kind. I loved to climb them when I was young. I have been really liking the mountain willows that grow here in the hills, the flowers are pretty.
