It’s the end of baseball and the beginning of cool crisp nights, marked by the months Octobrrrrr, Novembrrrrr, and Decemberrrrr. Leaves fall, pumpkins grin, geese fly in a v-formation. It must be that season with two names: fall and autumn. Appropriately earth-toned watercolor and colored pencil illustrations are accompanied by 48 short poems that use Douglas Florian’s characteristic punning and concrete forms. A companion to Winter Eyes and Summersaults , Autumnblings leaves us looking forward to Florian’s spring poems. (Ages 4–8)
