An adorable little one's board book with a convenient handy handle for their ease in carrying about. The illustrations are attention grabbing, fun, brightly colorful, and aid in understanding the story.

The text is lengthy enough to tell the story adequately for the intendended age audience with a vocabulary that is not "dumbed down for age."

Kregel Publishing's children's books have always been winners for engagement, accuracy, design, and lasting quality. I highly recommend.

This is a great book for primary students and intermediate. I feel that you can use this for teaching about space! i love this book and the illustrations capture the emotions Pluto would be feeling during this time.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a review here and on my blog Samwise Reviews. The artwork in this was gorgeous. It was a really cute story about a leaf being in the top of his tree classes, but then having difficulties with the very last one. I’m sure some kids with anxiety or being new in school would be able to relate, but even without the connection I enjoyed it. The tree facts were a perfect science level for children and I could see it leading to field trips and leaf collecting.… (mere)

The Very Last Leaf by Stef Wade is a super cute, absolutely adorable children's read!

To start off this review, the cover alone is absolutely stunning. The soft oranges and reds to give a fall-like feeling - it's gorgeous. It screamed out to me and made me want to pick up this little book. The style felt very classic yet very modern all at the same time.

We follouw Lance Cottonwood, a little leaf, on his first day of school! He's doing great in school but he began to worry about his exams. His final exam, falling to the ground, was mortifying! Will he make it? Will he become brave? Will he be the last, little leaf? You'll have to read to find out!

This book was just the sweetest and it had a lovely, little message: Working hard, getting over fears and not giving up! Throw in the delightful pictures with soft colours, and you've got a real hit. I think kids and parents alike will adore this picture book and easily be able to find a book on it's shelf. I'd highly recommend it! I could also see educators and parents using this book for not only fears in general, but darker themes like death and losing someone. It can be seen as very dark though, if you take it the wrong way.

My favourite part of this book is the little progress report at the end for our leaf friend! It's so cute and quite amusing.

Four out of five stars!

Thank you to NetGalley and Capstone for giving me the opportunity to pick up this wonderful book!
