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.
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.
Read an excerpt below:
When Fall Comes, and great gaggles of Canada geese honk and flap overhead, and the aspen leave change from green to gold, chilly air and shorter days remind us, it’s time to get busy.
Change is coming and there is so much to do. Not just for us, but for the animals too.
In the fall, everyone is on the move. Summer crowds are gone from the trails. The mud flats are filled with feeding shorebirds—some on their way south and some flying in for the winter.
Silver-red salmon fight their way up rushing streams, returning to the places they were born.
