From the author and illustrator of When Winter Comes--which received a Publisher's Weekly starred review--this beautifully illustrated, poetic children's picture book celebrates the joy of families being out in nature in the fall season, and discovering wildlife busily preparing for the winter months ahead.
Next up in the When Seasons Come series, this gorgeous picture book captures the joy of a family enjoying the outdoors in fall as they explore a broad range of ecosystems, filled with diverse animal habitats, after the summer crowds have left the trails. In this season, as the wildlife they discover along the way adapts and gets ready for the winter months ahead, the family also busily prepares for the seasonal change.
In autumn, as the air grows crisper and the days grow shorter, the family forages for mushrooms in the woods as chipmunks stash seeds in underground burrows, and red squirrels gather pinecones. As badgers dig new dens and bears look for the perfect spot to sleep away the winter, the family prepares their home for winter.
There is so much to discover and so much to do, as silver-red salmon fight their way up rushing streams, returning to places they were born, and mud flats fill with feeding shorebirds migrating for the winter, and aspen leaves change from green to gold.
This beautifully illustrated book will inspire families to get out and explore during the autumnal season. When Fall Comes is part of the When Seasons Come series that includes When Summer Comes and When Winter Comes board and picture books.
