Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak

As trees sway in the cool breeze, blue jays head south, and leaves change their colours, everyone knows - autumn is on its way! Join a young girl as she takes a walk through forest and town, greeting all the signs of the coming season. Glorious, evocative Illustrations portray this childlike conversation, saying goodbye to summer and welcoming autumn.


Pak's well-executed first appearance as both author and illustrator offers a warm welcome to fall. --The Horn Book, starred review

A visual success conjuring up the best about the seasons

--Kirkus Reviews
