Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS–Another entry in a sweet series. It is autumn and Mouse, accompanied by Minka, a larger rodent wearing a pink jacket, go out to play. As they enjoy the day, Mouse learns about leaves, their colors and shapes, and the fun that comes from piling them up and jumping in them. When Minka hides in the heap, Mouse is confused, but readers will quickly see her tail curling above the fallen foliage. Bright hues evoke the season and realistically show the leaves in all their variety. Swirling brushstrokes and texture add interest to the paintings. Each spread has one or two simple sentences, and additional comments (Pretty! Yippee! Whee!) are spread throughout to add to the fun. This is a pleasant read-aloud for introducing autumn, and it will certainly be enjoyed where the other titles are popular.–Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City

From Booklist

A welcome addition to the series that includes Mouse's First Halloween (2000) and Mouse's First Spring (2005), this playful picture book celebrates fall. Going out on an autumn day, Mouse and Minka, evidently Mouse's big sister, discover leaves falling through the air and lying on the ground. Minka leads and Mouse happily follows as they run through the leaves, look at their shapes, pile them up, and play hide-and-seek. Reds and yellows shine out jewel-bright against darker shades of blue, brown, and green. With warm colors and rounded forms, the large-scale illustrations are fine for sharing with groups of young children. A solid choice for preschool teachers seeking simple, childlike books on the season to share with their classes. Carolyn Phelan

My son is almost 2 and he loves books but this story was a favorite for weeks! He liked it so much I bought Mouse's First Snow as well but he seemed to like this book about fall better. The illustrations are beautiful! The board book is a good size and very durable (as I said we read it A LOT). My only complaint is that the entire series of mouse books do not come in board book version only a couple titles.

My 20 month old loves this book and asks for it to be read again and again. She now uses the exclamations in the book - "hooray," "fun," "pretty." She is delighted that Minka plays hide and seek but leaves his tail sticking out for her to discover! "Hip, hip hooray for fall!"

I purchased a large number of fall theme books at the beginning of October. My 4yr old enjoyed several of them, but this one he has had me read every day for the last month! It is very simple text with one line per page and simple, yet colorful illustrations.

Mouse's First Fall is a beautifully illustrated, simple story about a mouse experiencing his first Fall. The book encourages children to look at the colors and shapes of the leaves and think about the sounds the dry leaves make as they are stepped upon. My children love this book and the brilliant colors of the pictures - a great introduction to the Fall season!

I liked this book. I will be sharing it with a PK class in October. It is always fun to find new titles to share with the 15 different classrooms that I volunteer to read to each month.
The illustrations are very attrative.

I borrowed this book from the library. When it is story time, my three year olds ask for Minka. They absolutely love looking for her in the leaves and shouting hip hip horray for fall at the end! A real hit for teachers.

I used this book for a class of 4-5 year olds for our Fall/Leaves unit. They really enjoyed the story and pictures. I really enjoyed the ebook style (Kindle app on my iPad).

Love the sweet story of learning about fall. The book is a good quality board book, and its beautiful colors and sweet illustrations re-emphasize the fall message. Great buy!
