About the book-Fall Is Not Easy by Marty Kelley
You’ve got to feel sorry for your average tree. It’s got a lot to worry about: squirrels, thunderstorms, kids building forts. Oh, yes, and then there’s that pesky business about changing colors for the fall…
Main character in Fall Is Not Easy is a tree that has its share of troubles with its fall colors. No matter what pattern its leaves change into–a smiley face, a a spotted cow, an “Eat at Joe’s” sign–nothing seems to work out quite right. How will the tree solve its seasonal dilemma? Leave it to Marty Kelley, author/illustrator of Summer Stinks and The Rules to come up with the perfect solution.
What this book teaches-Change
My review of the book:
This is a quick read with creative illustrations. There are a number of concepts the book can teach: the change of seasons, the difficulty of change and changes in appearances. Change can be difficult for many of us. This light hearted story talks about it from a tree’s perspective!
