Fall Changes

Scholastic, 2000

 

Fall Changes is a 32-page paperback original for children aged 4-7. The most important changes of the fall season are told in brief, simple words and shown in beautiful seasonal photographs. A brisk seller in Scholastic bookclubs, this book (and its counterpart Spring Changes) chronicle spring and fall changes in weather, plants, animals, and people in “stunning photographs” (says the 9/00 Firefly bookclub flyer).

 

This sensory-based exploration of the seasons is enhanced by textural backgrounds (leaves, clouds, sheep fur, and bird feathers, for example) that fill the pages behind the main photos and text. This is science for the early childhood set with its brief text that teaches basic concepts and beautiful photographs that encourage children’s own observations of the world.
