With this title, the author covers her final season. I reviewed and recommended all of the earlier books in this series. The same is true for this one that is focused on fall.
Children are invited to learn about the many changes that autumn brings to nature. They will learn about fall crops including apple, pear and pumpkin varieties. There are ideas about ways to use parts of fruits that are often overlooked, as for example the apple core, giving a gentle message to make use of all of nature’s generosity.
Included within in these cheerily illustrated pages are crafts, cooking ideas, suggestions for planting and more. Make a birdhouse from a gourd, craft acorn cap candles, bake sweet pumpkin muffins or choose among the other activities. Directions are easy to follow and the projects look like fun.
In addition to offering fun, the book has a gentle message. That is to care for our environment. Even the book itself is printed from reused materials.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group-Ivy Kids for this title. All opinions are my own.
