“This exquisite picture book will inspire youngsters to get outdoors and observe the world around them.”—School Library Journal (starred review)
From Caldecott Medalist and Newbery Honor author Kevin Henkes and acclaimed painter Laura Dronzek, the bestselling and award-winning creators of When Spring Comes, Winter Is Here, and Summer Song, this beautiful paperback edition of In the Middle of Fall is perfect for the very youngest readers. Watch the world transform when fall comes!
In the middle of fall, it takes only one gust of wind to turn the whole world yellow and red and orange. Caldecott Medalist and New York Times-bestselling author Kevin Henkes’s memorable text introduces basic concepts of language and the unique beauty of the fall season. Laura Dronzek’s expressive paintings illuminate pumpkins, apples, falling leaves, busy squirrels, and the transformation from colorful autumn to frosty winter.
In a starred review, Kirkus called In the Middle of Fall, “A touching portrait of the fall season from two superb artists.”
