Grade 1-4–In this companion to The Shortest Day: Celebrating the Winter Solstice (Dutton, 2003), Pfeffer covers a great deal of territory. She describes the changes in the weather and the ways in which people and animals prepare for the coming winter. She provides specific information as to why seasons change and describes the way the harvest has been celebrated by different cultures throughout history. Back matter includes equinox facts, a recipe for Equinox corn muffins, and a craft activity. Although a substantial amount of information is presented, Pfeffer's lively writing style will keep readers engaged. Bleck's vibrantly hued illustrations, reminiscent of the work of Leonard Weisgard, are carefully interwoven with the text and enhance the book. A useful and attractive addition for most collections.–Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ

In a companion to Pfeffer's The Shortest Day: Celebrating the Winter Solstice (2003), this picture book begins with a description of what some animals and humans do during the autumn season to prepare for winter. There's information on the autumnal equinox, a history of harvesting in various cultures, a look at harvesting celebrations in several cultures, and more. The text is short, clear, and to the point, and the full-page illustrations, which have a 1950s retro look, are very child friendly. Inviting pictures of animals and people from past and current times and cultures will draw readers into the text. The book concludes with two simple experiments along with activities and information to encourage children to learn more about the equinox and harvest festivities. Randall Enos
