Book Review

Autumn is a simple book about great crafts children can make during the fall season. There is a little bit of background on the season in the introductory section called Autumn Colors. Background is also provided on each of the events behind the crafts in this book. Color drawings are used to illustrate the materials needed for the crafts in this book as well as the step-by-step instructions for the crafts. There is also a materials list highlighted in yellow for each craft and an Autumn Calendar and glossary of new and unfamiliar terms used in this book included at the back.

I really like the way there is a color photo on the first page of every craft project. They are beautiful and really capture the essence of the season or event the craft represents. Crafts or projects are included for The Fall, Chinese Kite Festival, Back to School, Harvest Time, Migration, Hibernation, Autumn Animals, Diwali, United Nations Day, Halloween, All Souls’ Day and Autumn Stars. I also like that the crafts reflect a multicultural society in the origin of the event behind the projects as well as the photograph of children from various backgrounds working together on a project in school (Back to School). Not only do the crafts in this book provide the opportunity for children to work together but families because assistance may be required for cutting and gluing depending on the ages of the children. It would also be fun to get together as a family to gather the natural materials required for the crafts.


  • Making a Paper Kite (Chinese Kite Festival)
  • Making a Flapping Bird Mobile (Migration)
  • Making an Animal Pencil Holder (Hibernation)
  • Making Festive Lanterns (Diwali)
  • Making Star Cards (Autumn Stars)
