The air is changing just a bit, giving us a hint that fall might be coming. What better way to get into the mood for autumn than reading a beautiful nonfiction picture book like Exploring Fall by Terri DeGezelle?
Part of the Exploring the Seasons series, this book features full page color photographs and illustrations matched with simple, controlled text. The book answers all the questions about the upcoming season a child might ask, including when does it start, why does it happen, and what changes to expect. It even mentions why we might expect more hurricanes to occur in the fall!
Exploring Fall by Terri DeGezelle is an obvious choice for a fall theme collection. Consider it for units on seasons and weather as well.
Inspired by A Tree Grower’s Diary: Take a photograph or draw a picture of the same tree once or twice a week from the same position and see how the colors change. (For adults and older children to share with younger children).
