This children’s book explores the colors, events, and emotions that the fall season brings, and it serves as a special treat for those of us who are not fortunate enough to witness the most dramatic effects of the changing seasons. Using simple rhyme schemes; invented words, such as “autumnatically,” “owlphabet,” and “fallicopters” (maple seeds); and descriptive spellings, this book from Florian’s seasonal series demonstrates that reading and writing can be lots of fun.
