Fun rhyming account of who loves the fall (though the spelling bee participant looks anxious rather than delighted). Art is just average--though thank heavens for a multicultural cast plus animals--but text carries through and seems good for preschool storytime.
'Who Loves the Fall?' is the only full sentence in this book, followed by a bunch of vocabulary words of things that happen in the Fall. The pictures and 'story' didn't impress me, but I thought it was a great book for learning new words.

Nothing especially memorable, but this is a quick, fun read capturing various snapshots of autumn activities. The rhymes are very good and it makes me want to go carve a pumpkin and sip some hot apple cider! :-)

Hits just the right note for preschool and very early elementary about Fall. I like the interesting word choices: "winged migrators, hibernators.... bonfire builders, pie-crust fillers..."
