"This exquisite picture book will inspire youngsters to get outdoors and observe the world around them."--School Library Journal

New York Times-bestseller and Caldecott Medalist Kevin Henkes's striking text introduces the unique beauty of the fall season. Acclaimed artist Laura Dronzek's expressive paintings illuminate pumpkins, apples, falling leaves, and busy squirrels. "A picture book to fall for."--Horn Book

Kevin Henkes and Laura Dronzek, the award-winning team creators of the acclaimed picture book When Spring Comes, which School Library Journal praised as a "must-have, joyful seasonal title for the youngest listeners," explore the sounds, sights, smells, and textures of a new season--fall--in this gorgeously illustrated picture book. In the middle of fall, the sky is nearly gray, the leaves have already turned, and all it takes is one gust of wind to turn the world yellow and red and orange.

Kevin Henkes's layered text features striking imagery, repetition, and alliteration to introduce basic concepts of language. Laura Dronzek's expressive paintings illuminate the transformation from colorful autumn to frosty winter. This engaging and vibrant picture book is ideal for story time, classroom sharing, and bedtime reading all year long.

Can you smell it? Can you imagine it? "Introduces concepts and vocabulary of fall--autumn colors, changes in plants and animals . . . and wind, which soon leads to the next season"--
