Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—In catchy rhyme, Raczka celebrates the smells, tastes, holidays, experiences, and changes in nature that make the fall special. Children jump in leaf piles, birds migrate, bears hibernate, a father bakes an apple pie, kids play football and soccer, young tricksters dress up for Halloween, and an extended family shares a Thanksgiving feast. Besides the usual seasonal fare, the author introduces corn-crop reapers, bonfire builders, "former caterpillars" (monarch butterflies), and "helicopters" (whirling maple keys). For those unfamiliar with maple trees, the helicopter reference may be confusing, but it is clarified in the "Fall Facts" on the final page. The brightly colored, well-designed illustrations pulsate with energy, movement, and charm. They feature multicultural characters who often assume nontraditional roles, such as the girl who plays football. Curiously, Stead painted her monarch butterflies yellow and black with only traces of orange instead of the usual orange and black. Nevertheless, this is a strong choice for units on fall, one that will prompt discussions about why children love the season.—Barbara Katz, Parish Episcopal School, Dallas, TX

"Overall, a vivid and lively introduction to the season that preschoolers will particularly enjoy."

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Pam - mom-ish since 2000 TOP 500 REVIEWER on December 13, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Judy Stead's artwork is colorful and bright, but unfortunately it is not enough to draw this book up from average, as the verse isn't particularly exciting and the verbal imagery is non-existent. In fact, the text essentially consists of a list of activities and things that people may, or may not, associate with Fall: raking, quilting(?), hooters (owls), bonfire builders, spellers (?).... It's hit and miss.

Below is an example of the text you will find from the first five (5) pages.

Who loves the fall?
Rakers,
leapers,
corn-crop reapers.

Nine words -- that's it. Which is too say, there's not much to read on these five pages nor in the ones that follow.

In contrast however, the artwork presents a range of topics that parents/teachers/caregivers can talk about with their charges. One of the drawings, for example, shows silhouettes of a flock of birds [text: "winged migrators"], while another shows the brown form of a bear in a cave [text" hibernators"]. So that if your child doesn't know about these things you can stop and talk about them.

Three Stars. [C-] ::: This is a slightly below average sort of book. The artwork is nice, and there are things to talk about, but the verbiage is just uninspired. If you have a toddler or preschooler you might give it a try. My five year old was not eager to read it again.

I thought this book was excellent. My son loved it as well. Reading it makes me see, feel and smell everything related to fall.
