Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn
Written and Illustrated by Kenard Pak
Age range: 3-7
Meet up with a girl as she takes an excursion to say goodbye to summer. On her expedition she says hello to the trees, and she admires how the branches “sway in the sun.” She greets animals who are looking for food to store away or heading south. She meets beavers and chipmunks making a cozy home for the cold weather ahead. The girl encounters a transformation of weather as people bundle up against a breezy wind. Our young explorer takes note of leaves as the trees and the ground light up with color.
The girl says goodnight to the earth as quiet beckons,
for the next morning autumn is here.
