The Summary

I am a leaf is  the story of the leaves. It tells us what the leaves do in each season. In the summer, they make food for the tree. In winter, they also make food. And then in the fall, the leaves fall from the tree in the ground. The book tells us how the leaves work for the tree even when they are not on the tree. When buried in the ground the leaves become soil. The soil helps the roots become stonger. It also talks about how different bugs use the leaves. It also tells us about leaves changing its colors from season to season.
