How does autumn taste? What is autumn shaped like? Why do leaves change color? How does frost form? These and other questions are answered in this colorful compendium of information about autumn combining facts and creative thinking. Color photographs of scenery, including trees changing color and evergreens (which are “ever green”); food; and other objects and activities associated with autumn illustrate an informative, accessible narrative. Changes taking place in the natural world, including migration, and in the human world, including Halloween and Thanksgiving, not to mention soccer games and leaf-pile jumping, are all included as dimensions of autumn are explained and/or visually explored. Dynamic page spreads add to the volume’s appeal. (Ages 4–7)
