Readers explore the concept of layering and collage with this interactive exercise in composition. Each acetate page depicts a single element in the leaf pile, though some are not leaves at all! As readers turn the pages, the leaf pile is deconstructed on the left. Younger readers will enjoy the seek-and-find aspects of hidden objects, while older readers might experiment by adding their own images between the pages. A key at the back provides the names of each kind of leaf shown.
