“Count Down to Fall” is a book that teaches about different kinds of leaves and presents other nature-related information while counting down from ten to one.

Cayden:  “I liked seeing how the different leaves have different shapes.  It was fun how they counted backwards in the book too.  The drawings in the book were cool.  I liked how you could see all of the hairs on the animals.  The part at the end when we talked about the different plant parts was fun too.”

Parent’s comments:
“Count Down to Fall” by Fran Hawk is another wonderful Sylvan Dell educational nature book.  I love how much both my son and I learn from reading these books!  The “For Creative Minds” section at the end of the book and the corresponding links and teaching activities on the website make for a very well-rounded lesson on the subject at hand.  The illustrations by Sherry Neidigh in “Countdown to Fall” were beautiful and very detailed and we loved the descriptive verse.  I look forward to many more titles from this publisher!
