"A timely story, one that yields multiple interpretations and meanings, from the "othering" of unfamiliar populations and those seeking refuge from a changing world to the impacts of climate change.Dieckmann beautifully weaves together some of today’s most difficult themes into a deceptively simple tale."
—Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
"A beautiful debut from Flying Eye [...] the intricate images, filled with polychromatic leaf-patterns and dynamic stillness, are too good to miss."
“A beautifully illustrated story with several great discussion points: loneliness, misunderstanding and fear, bullying, global warming, and environmental protection.”
—Little Cub Literacy
“I love the subtle important lessons expressed in this book such as xenophobia and climate change, issues I as a parent want my children to care about… Leaf is a treat in any collection and one I'm glad to have in our home.”
—Kids Lit is Lit
“a great starting point to talk to the little ones about the effects of global warming.”
