In the Middle of Fall

Published by Greenwillow, 2017
32 pages
ISBN: 978𢠢62573117

Ages 2-5

揑n the middle of Fall, / when the leaves / have already turned A picture book that evokes that time in the season when chilly air and gray skies and 揻risky squirrels and 揳pples like ornaments and trees full of color can be observed notes that it should all be remembered, because soon, / very soon / the sky will be white and empty / ready to fill up with snow. The poetic text with its wonderful imagery is paired with equally evocative acrylic paintings in which the muted tones of the autumn and winter skies are as exceptional as the bold fall colors, and the softly rounded figures (child, animals) add tenderness to the warm, inviting scenes. Highly Commended, 2018 Charlotte Zolotow Award  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
