In Autumn and Winter, author Elizabeth Palas invites young readers to witness the effects the passing seasons have on the environment. Through the vivid illustrations in her work, Palas aims to teach young children how to recognize the wonders of natural climate change.

The book depicts a girl as she goes on a stroll amidst the breathtaking autumn landscape, with golden leaves falling from trees only to be carried by the breeze. She takes in nature’s beauty and encounters various animals along the way, from a little hedgehog, to a singing oriole, and a chirping grasshopper. Soon, winter arrives, and when the girl walks again, it is in a pristine, snow-covered expanse with children sledding and skating. The season also marks the coming of Christmas, Santa Claus, and all the presents and celebrations of the holidays.

Autumn and Winter is an artfully crafted work that will provide children an entertaining and educational experience that will teach them the importance of recognizing the changing seasons. Its Christmas theme also makes it an ideal gift for parents to give to their young children for the holiday season.
