Wonderfall: Author, illustrator, and Ann Arbor native Michael Hall writes about a tree that is shown throughout the entire fall season, from the end of summer to the first snowfall.

Information is also given on the animals, acorns, and saplings and the process each goes through in preparation for winter.
Hocus Pocus It’s Fall: Magic words such as hocus pocus, alakazam, and abracadabra are interspersed in the text to help kids imagine the wonder of fall. Hayrides, apple pies, and chipmunks gathering acorns for food are shown with foldouts unveiling wonderful scenes.
Leaf Man: With a body made of leaves and acorns for eyes, Leaf Man is a drifting creature on the move during fall. Where does he go? A Leaf Man’s got to go where the wind blows! This is an imaginative book on the process of falling leaves and where they travel in the autumn wind. Realistic leaves are illustrated on die cutter pages throughout.
