I know it's autumn when
we rake the leaves in piles,
when doorstep jack-o'-lanterns
wear their crooked smiles ...
Leaves are falling, geese are flying, and warm coats are -- reluctantly -- being worn to school. That can mean only one thing: It's autumn!
Eileen Spinelli and Nancy Hayashi invite you to enjoy autumn's many delights -- from warm socks worn on chilly mornings to tempting piles of crackly leaves on the lawn -- in this sweet, funny look at fall.

PreS-Gr. 2. A little girl identifies the clues that tell her autumn has come. Narrated in rhymed verses, this picture book shows the activities of a little girl and her brother, parents, grandfather, friends, and the community where they live as the season progresses. Each verse begins "I know it's autumn when . . ." The expected apples, pumpkins, and red leaves make their appearance, but Spinelli also finds less obvious signs of fall, such as Father bringing out the box of winter clothes and the sight of a turkey sticker on the girl's spelling chart. Large enough for group sharing and as quiet and comfortable as the text, Hayashi's illustrations feature rounded lines, soft shading, and gentle colors. An amiable read-aloud choice for the season.
