Observes the aptly named fall season, characterized by falling leaves, falling apples, falling players on the football field, and falling temperatures.
Leaves on the trees fall—
red, gold, yellow, brown, and orange come down.
The temperature falls, bringing cooler weather. Grab your jacket or your sweater.
Ripe apples fall, for bobbing ...
and baking, and caramel apple making.
Seeds fall from the last sunflowers, and pumpkins come loose from the vines.
Which jack-o'-lantern will be mine?

Autumn with its riot of reds, oranges, and golds lends itself to glorious full color illustrations depicting the changes that take place during that time of year. Susan Swan brings young eyes a bounty of fall shades as she paints leaves falling from the trees, seeds falling from the last of the sunflowers, and apples falling from branches. True to its title author Nidey mentions falling temperatures when youngsters reach for warmer clothes, and even football players falling into the end zone. With autumn, of course, comes Halloween and festivals and the fun that accompanies each of these events. 'When Autumn Falls' is an eye catching way for very young readers to become familiar with and learn to appreciate this special time of year. - Gail CookeWas this review helpful?
