Overview

I know it's autumn when we rake the leaves in piles,
when doorstep jack-o'-lanterns wear their crooked smiles ...

Leaves are falling, geese are flying, and warm coats are — reluctantly — being worn to school. That can mean only one thing: It's autumn!

Eileen Spinelli and Nancy Hayashi invite you to enjoy autumn's many delights — from warm socks worn on chilly mornings to tempting piles of crackly leaves on the lawn — in this sweet, funny look at fall.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-A young girl lists all of the ways she recognizes the season's onset, from the late morning light to her dad pulling her coat out of storage to making acorn art at school to watching the geese fly south. The rhyming text meshes beautifully with Hayashi's color-washed illustrations, which portray the child and her family apple picking, going on a nighttime hayride, and listening to a Native American storyteller perform near a campfire. A delightful book that will be especially appreciated by teachers looking for autumnal materials.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Nancy Hayashi grew up in Bucyrus, Ohio, where every week she would check out as many books as she could carry from her local library. By the time she was in third grade, she knew she wanted to make books herself. After working as a designer and art director, Ms. Hayashi began writing and illustrating books for children. Ms. Hayashi lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two sons. She still checks out as many library books as she can.
