Falling Leaves
Story By: Andrew Frinkle

Do you know Fall?


It is the season of falling leaves.
The weather grows cool. The green trees begin to change.
They change to yellow, orange, red, and finally brown.

Then the leaves begin to drop.


They fall like golden rain or snow.
They gather on the ground.
The cool wind blows them into drifts.

Leaves rustle when they move.


They make noises as you crunch across them with your shoes.
They are fun to jump in. They are VERY fun to jump in!
Your dog can even play hide-and-seek in them.

More than anything, fall is pretty.


Eventually the leaves are all gone.
The trees are all bare.
Even then, Fall is pretty.

And never forget…


Winter is coming soon, too!
