Cute book for a quick read to your little ones. I love the multi-cultural family featured in it! The books is very lyrical but my 5 and 2 yr olds need a bit more in their books. I'd recommend this for parents with kids 1.5 and younger.

THis is a book for Early Childhood teachers Pre-K-1st grade . It is very colorful and useful when I started my Fall Unit. I used this book as a resource in our classroom library and the kids love the pictures and colors used in this story.
It is juvenile for the upper elementary but a perfect fit for my Kindergartener's!

This book is wonderfully written and is whimsically illustrated. With the text rolling and weaving through the pages they are fully illustrated, in what appears to be a bight water color style. The story follows a family through the fall season, as they help with a harvest, then attend a fair, spend time outside together enjoying life, nature and each other. My daughter loved it immediately and wanted to do some of the stuff in the story.

This series is amazing. I love that these books cover the seasons minus the holidays. There are a million holiday books out there so I like that these focus on other things. There's so much for kids to discover in these books about nature, family, and seasonal activities. I love that each book highlights the positive and negative sides to each season too. My child and I love them.

This is part of a series. The author has written one for each season. Winter: Let it Snow, Spring: Let it Rain, Summer: Let it Shine, and Autumn: Let it Fall. The books follow the same family throughout and showcase their seasonal activities through lyrical rhyme.

There are other such seasonal book series on the market, but this is my favorite. I feel it captures each season the best - from start to finish, and has the best illustrations. The rhyming makes this book fun to read and approachable for all age groups.

I first bought the Let It Fall book when my daughter was 1. I then added the other seasons. She's three and a half now and still enjoys reading them.

I have to disagree with the reviewers who say this book or any of the series lacks substance. What I like so much about the books is the ability to draw conversation from what you see on the pages. There are so many great comprehension questions to ask, even to a 1 year old. The pictures are so rich, with so much going on, each time we read them there is something new to point out. That is what makes these books so great to read again and again. I never tire of them.

This book is the quintessential book for fall. I love that none of the books mention holidays specifically. That makes them relatable to so many different religious or cultural groups here in America. Moreover, the four books make a great gift pack for multiple age groups.

The book has wonderful illustrations, but is very short on substance. My main complaint is that book only presents statement or repetition phrases, but nothing of real teaching or learning. In fact, i felt like the book was a rushing wind passing through all the scenes. Therefore the book will only be as good as what the reader adds into it. So the reader should pause and ask their child questions or given extra teaching. Some examples: what colors do the leaves change to? what color were the leaves before they changed? why is the bear going under ground in a cave during fall? what do the squirrels gather and why? why do trees lose their leaves? what season came before fall? what season comes after fall? why is she wearing a coat? what foods are picked in fall?

I love, LOVE getting books for my kids! Amazon is much more cost effective than their Scholastic book clubs, and this book was another great find here! My 5 year old loved reading it with me, and I know her little brother will eventually, too!

This is such a cute book! We've had a long, hot summer and I bought this book for my son just in time for the cooler weather and our visit to the pumpkin farm! The previous review gives a great description of the book. It's a wonderful, fun read for the fall season!
