Beautiful pictures, very pleasant read for parents, but my toddler merely tolerates it. ( )

Two children - presumably the girl from Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn and her brother - walk through their neighborhood and town, greetings the flora, fauna and natural forces around them, and being greeted in return. Everyone and everything, from the birds to the chrysanthemums, the clouds to the sky, is changing with the seasonal shift, as autumn departs and winter comes in...

Much as with its predecessor, I found that I enjoyed author/illustrator Kenard Pak's artwork in Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter far more than I did his text. The back-and-forth exchanges between the children and the natural world felt stilted and formulaic, rather than fresh and natural, and I found myself thinking, much as I did with Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn, that this would have made an excellent wordless picture-book. There is nothing covered in the text that isn't more than adequately depicted in the artwork. And what beautiful artwork it is! It reminds me a bit of Jon Klassen in style, but with a more colorful palette. Recommended to fans of Kenard Pak's artwork, and to anyone looking for visually appealing picture-books about the changing of the seasons. ( )

Serene, double-page-spread illustrations accompany spare text as a girl and her little brother take a walk on a late autumn afternoon. Snow comes overnight, and they wake up to a world remade white and decorated with icicles. ( )

This series is a beautiful, crisply illustrated way to explore the seasons. While seasonal books abound, these seasonal transition books are unique and feature a very diverse cast. Well worth the time to read, observe, and explore the pages. ( )
