PreSchool-Grade 2—Whimsical acrylic cartoons show busy children and animals in an alphabet-based text that emphasizes God's presence in the season: "The bright Jack-o'-lantern with its friendly, big grin/reminds us God's love is a light from within"; "…over the Scarecrow, all stuffed with hay./A reminder that God watches us each day." A barn dance, a quilting bee, and a hayride provide nostalgic scenes for children to consider, along with imaginative background details of animals reading, making beds, selling cookies, raking, and catching nuts in nets. Innocent faces, clear colorful shapes, and a smooth rhyming text that conveys the awe and joy of the season make this a sweet, gentle book for family and church settings.—Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI

Pang's illustrations are done in an appealing primitive style in a warm palette of fall shades, with a thoughtful overall design that sets off the art in oval shapes against solid backgrounds of autumnal colors. -- Kirkus Review <br><br> (Kirkus Review
