Camille is determined to rake her own pile of leaves—all the way up to her knees! She swishes leaves to and fro, watching her pile grow bigger alongside the piles made by Daddy and her little brother, Jayden. WHOOSH! After raking leaves to the top of her boots, a giant breeze blows the pile back down to her ankles. But Camille won’t be stopped until she gets the job done—a knee-high pile, the perfect size for . . . jumping in!
Leaves to My Knees is a playful introduction to the early math concepts of size comparison and measurement. A note by researcher and mathematics learning expert Marlene Kliman explains how parents and caregivers can use the book to help young children explore different sizes and measurement in everyday environments.

The gently sentimental and finely detailed storytelling is reflected in both the lilting text and the lyrical watercolor illustrations.”
