Children's Book Review: Fall Mixed Up
Fall Mixed Up
Written by: Bob Raczka
Illustrated by: Chad Cameron
Published by: Carolrhoda books, 2011
"Every Septober, Every Octember, Fall fills my senses with scenes to remember." "Bears gather nuts. Geese hibernate. Squirrels fly south in big figure eights." Fall is all mixed up in this silly book from Bob Raczka! Can you find his mistakes in the words and pictures?
* Although we have several more weeks of fall left, it's getting much chillier and starting to feel more like winter! I thought we'd better read this book sooner than later! This was another book that the kids recently read with my husband and were excited to hear again. They really enjoyed this book and couldn't wait to tell me about all of the silly things that happened. The author has gotten the months mixed up, the holidays mixed up, and everything else mixed up too. Bears gathering nuts, geese hibernating, wolves saying "meow" and caramel pumpkins are just the beginning of the silliness featured in this book. Raczka touches upon all things fall but mixes them up and needs the reader's help to find all the mistakes. The kids were laughing aloud and enjoying correcting all of the "mistakes" in this fun, fall picture book.
This book was borrowed from the library.
Family Rating: 1 1/2 thumbs up.
