As trees sway in the cool breeze, blue jays head south, and leaves change their colors, 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. In a series of conversations with every flower and creature and gust of wind, she says good-bye to summer and welcomes autumn.
Praise for Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn
"Pak’s well-executed first appearance as both author and illustrator offers a warm welcome to fall." —The Horn Book, starred review
"A gentle, gorgeous welcome to summer’s end and fall’s beginning, perfect for storytime or one-on-one reading." —School Library Journal
"A visual success conjuring up the best about the seasons’ changes." —Kirkus Reviews
"The focus is on the natural world, but Pak (Flowers Are Calling) celebrates city life, too, with drawings of diverse townspeople . . . that show a rainbow of a community. It’s a thoughtful look at the kind of change that unfolds almost imperceptibly." —Publishers Weekly
