Description

Autumn is in the air: days grow shorter and nights are long. Birds leave, flowers, too. Apples and temperatures fall—then snow!

Part poem, part silent stage, this luminous picture book puts autumn on display and captures the spirit of change that stays with us long after fall leaves. Unlock the secrets of this busy and beautiful time of year as the natural world makes way for winter.

Editorial Review

"Ethereal and lovely...gives a sense of time standing still as nature starts to slow down in preparation for the winter."
Booklist

"Two children experience all that nature has to offer across a fall season oin a northern temperate climate...The many observations of change include those in weather, plants and animals, and sunlight. It's the last that's most brilliant captures in the illustrations, in which the glowing gold of early fall sunlight changes, page by page, to the colder blue light of winter."
Horn Book Magazine

 

"This picture book cleverly maximizes the different meaning of the title words to teach readers about autumn....there's as much value in the wordplay as there is in the presented facts."
School Library Journal
