Summary: “September sun is low in the sky/So long summer/Green, goodbye!” So begins this homage to autumn. Each page has a few lines of poetry, describing the colors as leaves change from green to red and gold to brown. Large, colorful photographs show the stages in detail, as well as animals often associated with the season, like squirrels and geese. “Goodbye, leaf show/Winter is coming/Oh, hello, snow!” The last page provides a perfect transition to check out a similar book by the author, Best in Snow. Includes two pages that give more scientific information about what is happening on each page of the book. 40 pages; ages 3-8.
Pros: Another gorgeous book about the seasons from April Pulley Sayre (see also Raindrops Roll). Combine this with In the Middle of Fall by Kevin Henkes (see my 9/22 review) for a perfect autumn story hour.
Cons: All that raking.
