In this book "Who Loves The Fall?", Raczka celebrates the smells, tastes, holidays, experiences, and changes in nature that make the fall special. Children jump in leaf piles, birds migrate, bears hibernate, a father bakes an apple pie, kids play football and soccer. The brightly colored, well-designed illustrations pulsate with energy, movement, and charm. They feature multicultural characters who often assume nontraditional roles, such as the girl who plays football. This book is nice and good for small child.

In my opinion, the book "Who Loves the Fall?" by Bob Raczka is a really great book for younger students. Personally, I love books that are about the different seasons because oftentimes they give you ideas or facts about it that you may not have known before reading the book. Overall, this book gave ideas about who likes the fall and what different people do during the season. The simplicity of the words on the page would be appealing to a younger audience (K-2) and the illustrations perfectly showed the action or person that the text was describing. For example, one page says "bonfire builders," and is accompanied by an illustration that covers the entire page of a family roasting marshmallows while the dad brings wood for the fire. Another feature I really enjoyed about this book was that the back has a section called "Fall Facts," which includes words or concepts that the reader might be unfamiliar with. One of these words is "hibernate." Since this book only has 2-3 words per page, it is important that the reader understand each one, and this section in the back really help students who aren't familiar with these words. Students also may be able to relate to this book since it has a variety of fall activities and traditions they might be familiar with, and if some students cannot relate, they can be introduced to some of these ideas as well allowing it to appeal to a broad audience. The big idea of this book was to show different activities that can be done in the fall and different people or animals that enjoy the fall as well. ( )

It's hard when summer ends, but the hearty season that follows overflows with holidays, sports, and fun. In this companion to Spring Things, the author and illustrator pay tribute to fall.

Judy Stead's vibrant paintings help bring to mind the tastes, sounds, and colors that are autumn. Bob Raczka's rhyming verse is an invigorating celebration of fall.

Rhyming text and illustrations portray the sights and sounds of autumn, from "rakers, leapers, and corn crop reapers" to "trickers, treaters, and turkey eaters."
