About the Book
Counting with leaves is a book written by six year old Madeline Ohlweiler together with her Dad. Each autumn Madeline waits anxiously for the leaves to fall. She loves to play in her backyard in the leaves with her brothers. The joy she gets from playing in the leaves inspired this book.
