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.

Each page features an acrostic. For example, the first page is ACORN:

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
Turns to
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!

“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts and live our own lives in a way that is not possible for those keeping up with the crowd.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder

“After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it.”

On the Banks of Plum Creek

“They were cosy and comfortable in their little house made of logs, with the snow drifted around it and the wind crying because it could not get in by the fire.”
