Persistence and creativity can lead to amazing things, as Leif the leaf discovers in this lovely storybook from Allison Sweet Grant and Adam Grant, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Originals.
Leif is worried. It is autumn, and he doesn't want to fall and hurt himself. "All leaves fall in the fall," say the other leaves. But Leif is determined to find an alternate way down, and with his friend Laurel, he tries all sorts of things: a net made of twigs, a kite made of bark, a spider-web parachute, and others. But none of these work, and one by one he tosses them all to the ground in frustration. Finally, a gust of wind blows him and the other remaining leaves down from the tree. What does Leif discover? His pile of discarded ideas is tall enough to catch him for a soft landing. His perseverance has paid off, for him and all of his friends.
