Take babies and toddlers on an active, rhyming jaunt through changing seasons and preparations for winter in this sweet board book.
As the leaves start to change color and fall, bear eats fish, woodchuck builds a burrow, and squirrel collects nuts-all to get ready for winter.
This board book will help children get excited for autumnal fun: collecting leaf after leaf, trips to the pumpkin patch, and cozying up as the weather changes.
Amber Hendricks' short expressive lines with repeated action words make this poem perfect for sharing with babies and toddlers, and Gavin Scott's warm, cozy illustrations encourage all ages to appreciate nature.
For fans of The Happy Pumpkin, The Very Hungry Caterpillar's First Fall, and Little Acorn.
"This is a great companion to "Autumn Leaves Fall". As the animals are preparing for winter, the leaves are changing colors while they gather food for the long and intense period of hibernation. With rhyming text and colorful photos, this story wonderfully captures the changing of the seasons and is sure to be a hit with your young learners. This is great to talk about what normally happens during this time, i.e. gathering of food, making of lairs, etc. Can be used for science or music class to discuss weather and animal behavior, as well as to practice keeping a steady beat to the rhyming words. Teaching nature appreciation and gratitude is an important topic, and this book can also help generate these discussions. Highly recommend this title for any elementary personal or school library, to use at the beginning of a lesson, or as a way to transition to talking about the new season that is coming." - Children's Literature
