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.
