Look What I Did with a Leaf! (Naturecraft) Paperback – September 1, 1995
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From Publishers Weekly

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.
