Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

reS-Gr 1-A young boy describes what happens to animals, plants, and people in the autumn. Simple sentences explain that geese, hawks, and monarch butterflies migrate while other creatures hibernate, including the ladybug, earthworm, and frog. While the imagery of the harvest moon and silky milkweed is vivid, at times the text's rhythm feels awkward-"It's fall!/The air is turning crisp and cold./It's time to wear our warmer clothes./We put on jackets and pants and long sleeves/to keep us warm when it turns breezy." The stunning cut-paper art in the spectrum of autumn colors is highly detailed, richly textured, and fully supports the text. A long list of seasonal nature activities at the end of the book includes collecting seeds to plant in spring and going outside with a grown-up to look at the moon and stars. Consider Zoe Hall's Fall Leaves Fall! (2000) and It's Pumpkin Time! (1994, both Scholastic) as simpler companions.

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4, younger for reading aloud. This is the first of four interrelated books on the seasons, designed with the elementary-school nature curriculum in mind. Children can identify with the blue-jean-clad boy who narrates what he sees, touches, smells, and hears in fall. The story expands into what animals do in the fall and what changes nature itself undergoes: shorter days, crisper air, bare trees. The boy's rousing conclusion--"It's fall! It's fall! I love it all!"--exactly suits his eager exploration. The three-dimensional, cut-paper artwork both grabs attention and invites kids in for a closer look at naturalistic details. A listing of autumnal nature activities concludes. Glaser, the author of many well-received nature titles, has another winner here. Connie Fletcher

The pictures in this book are beautiful. It was a great way to introduce the concept of fall to my preschool class. It tells about all aspects of fall and is great for any age.

I really liked the illustrations, because they went so well with the words. It is written just the way I remembered Fall when I was younger. I would recommend this book to anybody who enjoys nature and ever jumped into a pile of leaves.

Just like the other books in this series, there is a part in the middle about animals that gets pretty wordy. My 3 year old always loses interest around this part, so I sum it up and move on. But a great book about tangible experiences of season change. I like it.
