Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn

9781627794152.jpgThere is a lot to look forward to in Autumn: the chill in the air, the leaves falling, the colours. Kenard Pak‘s Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn follows a girl on her walk through the transition between summer and autumn. She notices and calls out to the trees and they respond with how their sway has changed; to the beavers and chipmunks and they reply that they have no time to play because they need to look for food. Quiet and lovely, this book inspires nature walks to notice the world around for ourselves.
