Look at him! He's so proud!
Okay, how awesome are the pictures here? The drawings are mostly black outlines on white, with just a few touches of the fall colors red, yellow, orange, and brown here and there.
So Anton wants to get that one last leaf, but...
The leaf blows away and Anton runs after it.
Now Lukas joins in the chase after the leaf.
And what do the girls do?
The girls run too. They've almost got the leaf.
Of course the girls join in! Other kids running by chasing something: what 5 year-old can resist that?!
Drat! Just when they had the leaf trapped up in a tree, the wind sends it back in the direction it came from. In the tradition of We're Going on a Bear Hunt, the whole gang runs past all the places they've been before. Past the trees. Past the playground. Past the swing.
Well, you know what happens next, right?
And then they go home to celebrate with juice and cookies.
Isn't Anton the best? Doesn't he just make you want to be a kid again? Now, go on outside and jump in some leaf piles. You know you want to.
