Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
The artistry of Mr. Hirschi's spare prose and Mr. Mangelsen's photography makes this collaboration an aesthetic delight for browsers of all ages. Summer is ending and the leaves are turning color in this celebration of the season. The other seasons are represented in Springl, Summer, and Winter by the same team.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-- Large print, the generous use of margins, and beautiful full-color photography make these seasonal books attractive at a quick glance. Fall is effective, creating appropriate images and setting a mood. The warm oranges, rusts, and golds of autumn turn to the cooler hues of winter by the end of the volume. Content is brief, but evocative. Summer , on the other hand, is less successful. It often discusses animals in the reverse order of the photographs, focus switches from the subject to animal babies to mature wildlife, and the occasional switch from third- to second-person usage is more intrusive than personalizing. --Rosie Peasley, Somerset School, Modesto, CA
