|Summary, etc.:||"In a simple, evocative conversation with nature, a young girl witnesses how the season changes from summer to autumn"--|
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 July #1
A girl takes a walk on a late summer morning and says hello to animals and other natural elements, starting with blue jays, foxes, and butterflies and ending later that day with a "chill in the air," a puddle, autumn leaves, and the setting sun. They return her greetings with comments of their own. Finally, over the last three double-page spreads, which illustrate evening, night, and morning, she says the phrases that becomes the book's title. While Pak has contributed the art for other picture books, including Rita Gray's Have You Heard the Nesting Bird? (2014), this is his first as writer-illustrator. His text creates a light narrative framework while pointing out a series of seasonal changes. Using color and composition very effectively, the stylized artwork includes details that kids will enjoy discovering on their own. The wordless night scene beautifully lays out a bird's-eye view of the landscape and town that the girl walked through earlier in the day, giving children a chance to retrace her steps and recall elements of her early autumn ramble.
