Eileen Spinelli is the author of many picture books and poetry collections, including A Big Boy Now, Hug a Bug, and the bestselling When Mama Comes Home Tonight, among others. When she writes a story, she has an instant audience: her twenty-five grandchildren and husband, Jerry (also a writer). Aside from story making, Eileen teaches creative writing and poetry. The Spinellis live in Media, Pennsylvania.From Booklist:
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.
