This book, with its rhythmic text and wonderfully bright illustrations, introduces young readers to all that falls in Autumn. Leaves, football players, the temperature, the sun. The three dimensional paper collage pictures are vibrant and detailed and the kids loved finding the hidden images that can be found throughout this book. Birds in trees, a dogs eye peeking out from under a pile of leaves, the back of a child running behind a tree. There were many opportunities for interaction with my st...more
I don't think this book is aimed for the right audience. The pictures seem to be for an older audience than what the text is aimed for. It's a fun book to bring in the feel for autumn, but I don't know what group I would read it to--especially as the pictures are best taken in a lap-read than a group.
Since the weather just turned, this was a very timely book. Fall happens to be my favorite season and this makes a great case for all the reasons that it is my favorite. The cut paper illustrations are amazingly well done. Quite creative and fun for the story.
This book has a really clever idea about Autumn and Fall, but it seemed to go right over the kid's heads. They liked the illustrations and the words, but didn't get the big picture. I thought it was clever though!
Poetic text weighs heavily on the use of the word fall for the season of autumn. Many things fall during the season in addition to the leaves. Papercut collage artwork is beautiful. PreK-2.
I found this book to be a solid choice for fall readaloud, encompassing many aspects of the season in bright attractive illustrations and pleasant rhyming text.

Nice illustrations, nice rhyming book that captures a day in autumn and all the activities that happen in that season.
A cute picture book to read as summer is closing in and autumn is beginning to show.
Very nice collages; good book for toddler or preschool story time.

Each page uses the word "fall" to describe an autumn action.
