 When Autumn Falls. By: Kelli Nidey Illustrated by: Susan Swan "Synopsis As September fades, a new season begins. Leaves and temperatures tumble. And, as autumn falls, new colors and smells gradually replace the heat and intensity that was summer. Children love caramel-apple making and bobbing for apples. Jack-o'-lanterns appear and piles of leaves stacked high beckon. Autumn means the of summer, but the beginning of something new and crisp and familiar." (Summary given with website)
