Autumn: An Alphabet Acrostic by Steven Schnur and illustrated by Leslie Evans is one of my favorite fall books. It is the first book in a series that includes Spring: An Alphabet Acrostic, Summer: An Alphabet Acrostic, and Winter: An Alphabet Acrostic.
A single seed
Can feed a squirrel
Or grow into a giant oak that
Rains down new
Nuts every autumn
For the letter N we have NORTH:
Now cold winds come down
Out of Canada and
Hail and then to snow.
Each page is filled with gorgeous illustrations. The hand-colored linoleum cut blocks are rich with detail and evoke a strong sense of warmth and emotion in each illustration.
Autumn: An Alphabet Acrostic is a wonderful book for discussing the seasons, acrostics or poetry. So much is wrapped up in each page that it provides not only an enjoyable read aloud, but also an educational experience.
This is part of my A Month of Cozy Books series!
