Tuesday, October 23rd: In the Middle of Fall by Kevin Henke, illustrated by Laura Dronzek
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. Kevin Henkes’s layered text features striking imagery, repetition, and alliteration to introduce basic concepts of language and the fall season. Laura Dronzek’s expressive paintings illuminate pumpkins, apples, falling leaves, nut-collecting squirrels, and the transformation from colorful autumn to frosty winter. This engaging and vibrant companion to When Spring Comes is ideal for story time, seasonal units, and bedtime reading.
