Autumn Is Here... Hooray!

This little board book is a big deal in our house. After discovering it at the library a couple years ago, I had to buy it. Ann Burg paints an inviting picture of a little puppy going on a walk one beautiful Autumn evening in Autumn Walk.

She describes the colors wonderfully in her crimson and pumpkin gold world, and Burg's vivid language has kids crunching through the leaves too; "A whiff of apples and cinnamon toast, air that is corduroy cold."

As soon as the Summer is ending, we get this out, and don't stop reading it daily until the snow falls (and to be honest, we read it in other seasons too, when we miss our favorite season — Fall!)
