“Leaflets three, let it be! may be what we think we know about poison ivy, but this picture book will surprise readers young and old. While poison ivy may give some humans a rash, it has an important place in nature. Taking us through the year, the narrative introduces many creatures, including a rabbit, a salamander, and several insects and birds, which all depend on poison ivy for food or shelter. Illustrated with breathtaking three-dimensional paper sculptures that make nature come alive, this engaging nonfiction book proves that while poison ivy is perceived as mysterious and dangerous, it has a purpose in the world. Includes further information, Q&A, and illustrator’s note.
