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.
