Wednesday Book Review: Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak

Book Review: Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak. 

Pak, Kenard. Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn. New York: Henry Holt, 2016.

This is a wonderfully simple story about a little girl walking through nearby parks/forests and then her small neighborhood and town.

She walks and picks flowers:

Looks at the leaves changing:

Walks through her town feeling a chill, and getting ready for colder weather:

This book is beautifully illustrated, and the small details will enthrall children. The small details and repetition (the small blue bird, the dog, etc.) reminds me a little of Jan Brett's books where small animals return page after page, and kids delight in finding these small friends! 

I can't wait to read this to Baby Thakkar and take a nature walk with her to find flowers, leaves, and maybe even a few other surprises! 

Read aloud the book Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn, and take a nature walk, or try a themed walk!
