Fall

A Story for Bear
Dennis Haseley
When a young bear finds a scrap of an old letter, he is so curious about the mysterious marks that he searches out their source--a cabin in the woods. There he meets a young woman and is mesmerized by the sound of her voice. Though he cannot understand her words, he returns every day to hear the woman's stories of sailors, goddesses, and far-off lands.
Dennis Haseley's magical fantasy and Jim LaMarche's luminous illustrations together celebrate the joy of reading. A book sure to delight any child who has ever been read to.

McClure, Nikki
Apple follows the life of an apple throughout the year, demonstrating the cyclical patterns in nature. The youngest readers will delight in following the journey of the bright red apple--the only splash of color in the otherwise black-and-white illustrations--as it travels from tree, to harvest, to snack, to compost, and finally to sprout. A single word complements each illustration, urging early readers to reflect on each stage in the apple's life.
Apple is acclaimed cut-paper artist Nikki McClure's very first book, originally self-published and sold in a limited edition of just 200 copies. Now, 16 years later, it is available in wide release, and fans will relish the chance to own the book that launched McClure's signature style.

Praise for Apple

Philip C. Stead
It was almost winter and Bear was getting sleepy.
But first, Bear had a story to tell...

Bear found his friend Mouse, but Mouse was busy gathering seeds and didn't have time to listen to a story. Then Bear saw his friend Duck, but Duck was getting ready to fly south. What about his friend Toad? He was busy looking for a warm place to sleep. By the time Bear was through helping his friends get ready for winter, would anyone still be awake to hear his story?

This endearing story of friendship and patience is a worthy companion to Philip and Erin Stead's last collaboration, A Sick Day for Amos McGee, winner of the 2011 Caldecott Medal.

Rotner, Shelley
"Green leaves are turning colors. . . . Maple seeds twirl to the ground. . . . Animals get ready for the cold days ahead."

A simple text and vivid photographs show children the changes in animals, plants, and landscapes that occur during fall. Leaves change, animals prepare for winter, and people celebrate autumn holidays as the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter.

Suitable for young readers, the simple text introduces a number of important concepts-- such as hibernation, migration, and seed dispersal-- in clear terms, without too much detail. For older readers, a brief author's note at the end expands on several concepts.

Shelley Rotner's energetic photographs of diverse children add vitality and warmth to this celebration of the season, capturing the brilliance of the autumn sky, the saturation of autumn leaves, and the joy of kids interacting with the natural world.

Follow the changing seasons through the year with the rest of the Hello Seasons! series.
