Kirkus Reviews
From watching squirrels gather acorns to hearing leaves swirl in the wind, a young toddler explores the sights and sounds of autumn in this import from Holland. Like its sister book, Winter Snow (2012), this title shows an isolated image of an object on one side of the page with some short descriptive text. The facing page places the object in context, often with the young protagonist using it. Since most of the images in Slegers' thick-lined and boldly colored cartoons are simple and clear, there doesn't seem to be much need to spotlight each object on its own page. The title may confuse children and adults, as autumn leaves are only pictured in two of the six spreads. Safety-conscious parents will cringe that an entire spread is devoted to this curious toddler admiring a patch of mushrooms that bear a striking resemblance to the very poisonous Amanita muscaria. While many of Slegers' books are simple and enjoyable, this one is unfocused and does a poor job of introducing the season. (Board book. 1-3)
