A Leaf Can Be

Posted on June 26, 2013 at 11:29 PM

All of the month of May and the beginning of June kept me busy with preparations for attending my first book conference.

The 21st Century Children Nonfiction Book Conference was an amazing experience. I was able to attend workshops, panel discussions and social networking events with numerous engaging authors and publishers. 

I highly recommend the book written by one of the conference presenters, Laurie Salas Purdie, for your little ones. 

Her book,  A Leaf Can Be,  is incredibly enchanting and a great inspiration piece to use with the fun art projects I wrote about in my last two Spring posts, Spring Trees Part 2 & Spring, Where Are You? , in the Art Project category of this blog.

These pages show how a leaf can be a "shade spiller" or a "mouth filler".....just a few of the entertaining roles that leaves can play.

The artwork in this beautifully rhyming picture book is done by Violet Dabija, who lives in Chisinau, Moldova. (Moldova is a small sliver of a country located between Romania and Ukraine.)

More fun art projects are on the way soon.  In the meantime, below is a very cute hand-print & fingerprint idea that can easily be done when exploring what a leaf can be.
