From School Library Journal
"A clever and triumphant tale by the Grants showcasing how even discarded ideas can build a foundation for great things. Kids will love examining the mixed media and digital collage creations of Liddiard." —School Library Journal
"The narrative is written in present tense—a clever choice to underscore the immediacy of Leif’s anxiety . . . A polished, clever take on the falling-leaf narrative." —Kirkus
"Liddiard's mixed-media illustrations, in appropriately autumnal hues, depict the expressive, anthropomorphized leaf characters, along with other creatures, such as inchworms and ladybugs . . . this highlights the rewards of supportive friendship and the worthy notion that even failures may have value." —Booklist

I liked it for the same reasons why I like following Adam Grant- brilliant, bite-sized affirmations that help you improve your personal and professional mindset. This book is that, in kid form!
A simply-told story with a surprise ending and a powerful message featuring delightful illustrations that children will greatly enjoy.
Well done, authors Allison Sweet Grant and Adam Grant, and illustrator Merrilee Liddiard
Telling him that he that all leaves fall and he should just be the norm, Leif has a friend who believes in him and his inventions. It lets you know it’s okay to be afraid...it’s okay to work though that and even try to invent something to help with your fall! And even when his inventions don’t work the exact way he planned, they still helped him fall to the safety of the ground. In the current state of the world with a pandmic, we need a character who is creative, persistent and resilient! I can’t wait to see what Allison and Adam write next!

傑作の多い葉っぱの童話や絵本、例えば「Ole and Trufa」や「葉っぱのフレディ」には及ぶべくもない(°▽°)
Best-selling author Adam Grant and his wife Allison Grant recently published a picture book ^ ^
I understand what Mr. and Mrs. Grant want to say, but I'm sorry that there is no depth ^_^
A storybook with many masterpieces of leaves, such as "Ole and Trufa" and "
The Fall of Freddie the Leaf"should not be reached (°▽°)
