A charming guide to the mindful practice of observing and appreciating the magnificent colors of autumn foliage.

Reconnect with nature through the quiet practice of leaf-peeping. Every autumn, we're graced with a breathtaking spectacle as the leaves turn from green to amber and gold. But how often do we stop to appreciate it?

In this charming book, discover the fascinating science of leaf-turning, practical tips on where to find foliage, musings on what we can learn from the perennial, cyclical nature of leaves, as well as grounding rituals that encourage mindful observation of this stunning natural phenomenon. Line drawings and a textured case add a lovely visual and tactile component, and the petite trim size makes this perfect for taking on an adventure. At once meditative and insightful, LEAF PEEPING reminds us of the value of slowing down and paying attention to the many wonders that surround us.
