Let it Fall review

Let It Fall
 
The leaves turn red, brown, and orange, then drift down from the trees. It is time to go apple picking and on hayrides at the county fair. Fall is finally here!
With soft colored art, adorable children, and colorful outdoor scenes, LET IT FALL celebrates all the seasonal awe of autumn.  (goodreads summary)
 
The fall season is my favorite time of year. There is so much going on yet to enjoy before the arrival of the winter months. This cute book is a nice introduction to the Autumn season reminding us of all the special things we can see, feel and do this time of year. The short rhyming text flows nicely and would be great for beginning readers. The pictures are soft and full of expression as the family rakes leaves that blow in the wind, attend the county fair, view the beautiful colors while hiking and pass a few animals getting ready for the cold changes themselves.  This book put me in the mood for some caramel apples!  I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3 - 6.~
