It’s finally fall which means the leaves are changing colours, it’s getting darker earlier, and it is an incredible time to get outside and explore. We love going out on walks as a family so when I found out that there was a book entitled just that I wanted to check it out.
Fall Walk by Virginia Brimhall Snow is a stunning book that has been beautifully illustrated. It reads very easily because it is written in a rhyming narrative. I like this narrative for children’s books because I find it reads more smoothly, but children also pick up on the words that rhyme and after a couple reads they start to say these words when you get to them.
Each page has a great illustration in the background of children on a walk outside, in the foreground is the name of a tree and a colour picture of what the leaf looks like from this tree. It’s a great contrast on each page. Since only the leaf and it’s tree name are in colour they really pop off the page.
If you and your family go for lots of nature walks you could either take this book with you and see how many leaves you can match to the ones in the book, or collect some leaves along your walk and bring them home to try and match up. It provides a great interactive learning opportunity.
Fall Walk is by Virginia Brimhall Snow. The book is published by Gibbs Smith. You can purchase Fall Walk here.
