Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This unusual look at the natural world explains how to create fanciful animals from leaves. Ages 4-8.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-A unique combination of nature craft, art theory, and field guide, attractively packaged. The bulk of the book is an enjoyable album of collage animals cleverly and realistically formed out of leaves in an array of sizes, shapes, and autumnal colors. Each white page is graced by a single easily identifiable creature, among the most striking a butterfly, a cow, and a peacock. In a conversational tone with rich vocabulary, the text discusses considerations in creating the projects and encourages a variety of texture and effect through the use of color, contrast, shape, and size. "Art Notes" provide tidbits of peripheral advice for simplifying the projects. The book concludes with step-by-step how-to information for readers to assemble their own masterpieces, an explanation and diagram of the life cycle of a leaf, and a simple field guide that identifies the samples used in the models. Well written, uniquely illustrated, and inspiring, this will work beautifully with a science lesson that includes an outdoor trek and art project.

I am a teacher who has used Look What I Did With a Leaf during my science study of trees. The children collected leaves from the school campus, sorted them, and talked about their purpose as a part of the tree. The children then used their leaves to create leaf creatures which they used to make leaf print t-shirts. This book was a hit with the children and certainly served us well by getting their creative juices flowing.

I am using this book this fall with my preschoolers. After reading the book we will go for a nature walk and then will us the leaves and such found to make their own creatures, which we will turn into placemats to use at snack time. This is a great book and their are so many ways you can use this in the classroom.

I am a children's librarian and this book is one of our holdings. It's an incredible little book. It's absolutely wonderful for the classroom but it's also great for anyone who wants to use nature to create some wonderful, artsy pictures, crafts, etc. Let your imagination run with this little gem.
I purchased this for my daughter who teaches first grade. She also has children of her own and when they recieved it, it was a huge hit!!!
In my opinion, this is an absolute little marvel. I highly reccomend this book. It's great for anyone.

Perfect for fall back-to-school art-meets-science-meets-art projects, this arts-n-crafts book offers some really clever, creative examples of animal collages made from a variety of leaves: particularly striking are the peacock and the cow. Tips on creating collages, from collecting and preserving leaves to using contrast and texture are described in clear, simple text. And although this is plainly a "how-to," book, Look what I Did... does offer a brief explanation of "the life cycle of a leaf," albeit delivered with far less enthusiasm than is the "Craft" portion of the book. There is also an interesting "field guide" at the end of the book that provides a picture and description of many deciduous tree leaves; unfortunately it is decidedly slanted toward the "East Coast" flora. (As a resident of the Pacific Northwest, it would have been nice to see a few examples of "left coast" trees included as well.)

This is a terrific book to use during the Autumn months for brightly colored leaves but can be used anytime of the year. The book shows a field guide different kinds of leaves which is helpful but depends on where you live. It also shows you how to do these leaf creations. It's perfect for nature walks and collecting your leaves getting your child's imagination to create terrific works of art and is also another terrific way of teaching your child how even things in nature can be recycled.

Using leaves this books shows you how to make: cow, butterfly, elephant, turtle, owl, parrot, rooster, fox, frog, rat, peacock, fish (from the cover)

I've used this book in middle school teaching my students about symmetry. They gather their own leaves in the fall during a class trip to our local park. In the spring, we take them from the books we've pressed them in and begin creating. They LOVE making their own creations as well as the ideas from the book.

What an amazing book! The pictures made of dried leaves look very realistic. This book has inspired many students to collect and dry leaves so they could create their own works of art from leaves.
