Goldstone (100 Ways to Celebrate 100 Days) delivers a thorough overview of the season of autumn and what it entails in terms of the environment and weather, plants and animals, and human traditions and experiences. A chunky, informal font announces what each page is about (“Leaves change color. Why do leaves change?”), with detailed information unspooling in a smaller typeface (“As days get shorter, leaves stop producing chlorophyll. The trees don’t need it anymore”). Photographs of fall trees, animals, clothing, and activities appear throughout, often appearing within leaf-shaped silhouettes. Several spreads dedicated to hearing, taste, and touch encourage kids to actively embrace the season with all their senses, and a list of fall activities carries that idea through to the end. Ages 4–8. (Aug.)
