Reviews

â "Author-illustrator duo Henkes and Dronzek extol the quiet splendors of autumn in this lyrical, exquisite complement to their previous seasonal outing. Henkes' text masterfully raises and stirs moods and sensations in pieces. A touching portrait of the fall season from two superb artists." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) â "From the husband-and-wife team behind When Spring Comes comes another stirring picture book about the changing seasons. Masterfully conceived and executed, this perfectly captures the sights and feelings many children experience during the transition from fall to winter." -- Booklist (starred review) â "Henkes and Dronzek's latest offering stands on its own as a quietly joyful paean to autumn. Closing endpapers decorated with lacy snowflakes put the final touch on this gorgeous offering. A picture book to fall for." -- Horn Book (starred review) â "Poetic text and lush-hued acrylic paintings depict a rural setting fully turned to autumn. Delightful details and sensory-rich images pack the pages. A must-have for autumn storytimes and investigations, this exquisite picture book will inspire youngsters to get outdoors and observe the world around them. -- School Library Journal (starred review) "In the evocative companion to When Spring Comes, spouses Dronzek and Henkes praise the beauty of fall in full swing. It's a rich homage to the season-both its blazing colors and the signs of coming winter darkness." -- Publishers Weekly "Henkes's gentle but vivid text has a cozy rhythm that makes this a lulling and evocative readaloud. Dronzek's full-bleed acrylic illustrations lean on autumnal russets and oranges, using the changing colors of the sky as it moves from slate to cyan for vibrant contrast. Lovely." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
