Overview


Large and beautiful color illustrations on every page of this book—one in a brand-new four-volume series—will appeal especially to early grades boys and girls. Kids will also love having the simply written descriptive text read to them as they gaze at the charming pictures—and as they get just a little older, they’ll be able to read the text by themselves! Both words and pictures evoke the moods and activities of autumn, and the illustrations show children at seasonal play

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-While these titles have appealing artwork on every spread, the information presented is slight or simply misleading. In Spring, Roca states that some animals come from "their mother's belly and others are born from an egg"; even very young children are familiar with the concept of hatching. Readers are encouraged to search for chestnuts in Autumn and to look for almond trees blooming in Spring, but both of these activities surely depend on where one lives. The inclusion of Christmas and Easter in the seasonal discussions detracts from the natural focus of the books and may limit the audience. Fun projects and crafts are provided at the end of each book. A guide for parents that delves a bit more deeply into certain concepts is appended. Linda Glaser's "Celebrate the Seasons!" books (Millbrook), with their cut-paper collage illustrations and lyrical texts, are better choices.-Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
