There is so much more to autumn than leaves changing colors, but too often in children’s pictures books, changing leaves seem to be the extent of things. Not so in this picture book. First, it has brilliant, gorgeous photographs that show so much more than changing leaves. There are many other things that change when the seasons change — animals’ fur thickens, birds fly south, temperatures cool, seeds dry and scatter, amphibians burrow underground, frost comes overnight, beings of all kinds stock food for winter, and, of course, leaves change colors. The spare text tells the story to youngsters about all the changes, and key words are printed in larger, bold type to encourage beginning readers. This book will be a lovely addition to any children’s library, public or personal. It is the kind of book youngsters will want read to them over and over and one they will spend time with on their own to study the beautiful photographs. As the seasons change from summer to autumn to winter, children will feel comfort as they understand these big changes through this charming book.
