Here's another bear story that I was drawn to by the illustrations . . . that and the fact that it's about fall. I'm telling you childrens' book illustrators beckon like sirens when their illustrations are stunningly executed!
In Leaves (c. 2007), David Ezra Stein creates his artwork with bamboo pen and watercolors giving the illustrations a unique personality. This sweet book chronicles a bear's first year. Imagine his surprise and bewilderment as he witnesses the first leaves fall.
