Leapified Books

We've compiled a list of books that are either entirely Leap themed, or have somehow incorporated Leap Day into the story.  Some of these books you can buy at amazon.com, so consider buying from the amazon carousel below, or ask your local book store or do a search online. If you can, get an extra copy to give to a school or library. They really need these books!
