Leaves by David Ezra Stein
A bear cub is experiencing fall for the first time. When the leaves start falling, one at first then more and more. He is very confused. He tries to put them back on but that does not work. He decides to take the leaves and fill a hole with them which he later decides is a great place to spend the winter. When he wakes up he is quite happy to see new buds on the trees. A simple introduction to fall and hibernation for younger students to enjoy.
