As leaves fall from their trees, animals huddle against the cold, and frost creeps across windows, everyone knows--winter is on its way!
Join a brother and sister as they explore nature and take a stroll through their twinkling town, greeting all the signs of the coming season. In a series of conversations with everything from the setting sun to curious deer, they say goodbye to autumn and welcome the glorious first snow of winter.

Since it is winter at the moment when I saw this book in our library I knew I had to grab it. I figured it would be a great book to read during the week of the kiddos being out of school. A and I read it at bedtime and she loved looking at the pictures and finding the deer that seems to follow the brother and sister through out the story. 
In Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter we are going through the season of Autumn or Fall and into Winter. We get to see through the pictures of how the world changes from a color of red, yellow and orange to a white winter. 
There are not a lot of words to the page so children who can not sit still very long can enjoy the book. 
The illustrations are very well done and have an earthy feel to them.
