Pretty. Pages show two large words for the early reader (ex: "Leaves fall") and then a lot of smaller text for an adult or more advanced reader to read.

My problem is that there were at least three scientific inaccuracies in the smaller text. I can understand reducing the complexity of an explanation for younger children, but these were inaccurate, not just simplified.

SUMMARY: This is the story of fall as it progresses from summer leaving to snow and winter coming. It gives scientific facts on each page about what is really happening in the world that make the changes that cause fall.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created with ink, yupo paper, light and photography. The pictures are absolutely amazing. The use of light, muted colors to portray the season, and the lovely details are so delightful to look at.

THE GOOD: The illustrations are the highlight of the book. They could almost be used alone to make a wordless book.
THE NOT AS GOOD: The font is teeny tiny when there is an entire page that could be used. The words are very scientific which does not match the ethereal pictures. "The sun also slowly moves in a circle around our galaxy..."

AGE RECOMMENDATION: Grades K-3
