It was his first year. Everything was going well until the first leaf fell." A puzzled young bear is worried about that leaf, and soon he sees red leaves and yellow leaves falling all over his island. "He sat beneath a tree, and watched them go, all around. But he grew sleepy and so he found a hole and filled it with leaves, and went to sleep. . . ." Full-color watercolors illustrate this tale of the changing seasons. Winner of the 2008 Ezra Jack Keats Book Award.
