Fall is for School! / by Robert Neubecker


 My new book! Our brother and sister team from Winter is for Snow are facing the dreaded fall season and....school! Sister is stoked, Bro, not so much...from School Library Journal:

“Fall is for school!” a jubilant girl shouts while her older brother mourns the loss of summer vacation. The boy whines that school is uncool and too hard, it’s full of teachers and homework. But his sister extols the virtues of nice teachers, fascinating projects, recess, and Halloween parties. Eventually, the boy changes his tune as his sister exclaims, with grown-up wisdom, “We’ll learn, and we’ll be clever./A great big world will open up/and change our lives forever.” The full-bleed digital illustrations are full to bursting with fall colors, as well as an accumulating collection of things the siblings will learn about, from Abraham Lincoln to rocket ships. VERDICT This cheery (rah! rah!) back-to-school selection is a colorful ­addition for school and public libraries.
