In the Middle of Fall - $8.00
by Kevin Henkes
In the middle of fall, the sky is nearly gray, the leaves have already turned, and all it takes is one gust of wind to turn the world yellow and red and orange. Caldecott Medalist and award-winning author Kevin Henkes’s striking text introduces basic concepts of language and the unique beauty of the fall season. Laura Dronzek’s expressive paintings illuminate pumpkins, apples, falling leaves, busy squirrels, and the transformation from colorful autumn to frosty winter.
“This exquisite picture book will inspire youngsters to get outdoors and observe the world around them.”—School Library Journal (starred review)
“Author-illustrator duo Henkes and Dronzek extol the quiet splendors of autumn in this lyrical, exquisite complement to their previous seasonal outing. Henkes’ text masterfully raises and stirs moods and sensations in pieces. A touching portrait of the fall season from two superb artists.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
