KIRKUS REVIEW

A brief introduction to the signature components of fall in temperate climates as discovered by a puppy, kitty, and squirrel.

Together, the three friends explore the autumn world with its “friendly scarecrows… // crunchy acorns… / walks in the woods… // hats and scarves… / woolly mittens… // bright orange pumpkins… / spooky costumes… // yummy pies… / candy apples… // fluffy blankets… / warm fires… // and jumping in leaves.” With only a few words per page, the simplicity of the text allows the illustrations to take center stage. Children and adults alike will find them appealing and truly evocative of the season as the wide-eyed animal characters make their ways through a world suffused with yellow, orange, and red. In companion title Where’s the Pumpkin, an adorable black cat named Spook searches high and low, mistaking various items for pumpkins before finally finding the pumpkin patch.

Use this simple, effective title with its companion or pair it with other seasonal offerings to explore autumn with babies and toddlers. (Board book. 6 mos-2)
