“This is the first of four interrelated books on the seasons, designed with the elementary-school nature curriculum in mind. Children can identify with the blue-jean-clad boy who narrates what he sees, touches, smells, and hears in fall. The story expands into what animals do in the fall and what changes nature itself undergoes: shorter days, crisper air, bare trees. The boy’s rousing conclusion – ’It’s fall! It’s fall! I love it all!’ – exactly suits his eager exploration. The three-dimensional, cut-paper artwork both grabs attention and invites kids in for a closer look at naturalistic details. A listing of autumnal nature activities concludes. Glaser, the author of many well-received nature titles, has another winner here.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Nature seems to come alive with the pages of this beautiful and interesting tribute. . .”

The Horn Book Guide

“Glaser’s poetic text celebrates the sights, sounds, and activities of fall: jumping in leaves, watching animals prepare for winter, and planting bulbs for next spring. . . Swan’s cut-paper illustrations are bursting with color and movement, reminding us that even autumn is full of life. Seasonal activity ideas are appended.”
