We’re Going On A Leaf Hunt

By Steve Metzger

Join three friends on a fun leaf-finding adventure! This bouncy new version of the popular song begs to be read out loud. There are lots of beautiful fall leaves to find! Three friends have a big adventure hiking over a mountain and through a forest to collect leaves of all kinds and colors. What will they do with all their leaves at the end of the story? Jump and play in them, of course! With easy rhyming text and fun sound effects, children will delight in this rollicking autumn story.

This sweet, interactive fall book can be used to engage young students. It is a similar pattern to We're Going On A Bear Hunt. It is also great for targeting the /l/, /f/, and vocalic /ear/ sounds!
