Rotner vividly captures quintessential aspects of autumn while emphasizing observable changes that are constantly occurring in nature. --Publishers Weekly Children will learn to cherish the fall season after reading Rotner's latest. . . . The title is also great for encouraging tactile learning and exploration; kids will be begging to go outside and experience the season for themselves. An artful and informative addition to early nonfiction nature collections. --School Library Journal As in the previous book, the photographs (presented here in a variety of sizes and layouts, all clean) are the stars here, displaying both the myriad changes of the season and a multicultural array of children enjoying the outdoors in fall. --Kirkus Reviews
