Summary
This loving and whimsical intergenerational picture book captures the wonders of fall as it reflects the common childhood desire that everything stay exactly as it is forever.



Bella loves the sights and sounds of fall--the crinkle-crackle of fallen leaves, the crunch of crisp, red apples, the honking and flapping of migrating geese. She wants the season to last forever. She also wants her fall coat--the one her Grams made especially for her--to last forever. But the coat is worn-out and too small. . . . With a snip and a whir, Grams makes sure Bella will be warm when the first snowflakes fall. And Bella finds a perfect use for her old favorite coat -- on the first snowman of the season. Adorned with beautiful fall oranges, reds, and yellows, and sprinkled with fun sound words, this read-aloud will help families celebrate both fall and winter.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Bella's favorite coat, the one Grams made for her, is getting too tight, but that doesn't stop this lively girl from enjoying fall outdoors. Every time her grandmother mentions the coat, Bella zooms outside, where she dives into piles of leaves, climbs trees to pick apples, and flaps her arms like the nearby geese. Meanwhile, Grams smiles, presses leaves, makes apple tarts, and, late that night, stitches up a new coat. Putting it on immediately, Bella loves it and runs outdoors, where she puts her old coat on a new snowgirl, saying, It's her favorite! Plourde's text reads aloud well with nicely balanced segments of the story and a telling that uses both realistic dialogue and narrative sections with paired words such as She sneaked and snooped. She honked and whistled. She flapped and flew. As vibrant and energetic as Bella herself, the dynamic digital illustrations make good use of patterns, textures, and deep, rich colors. A fine picture book for autumn story hours.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A girl named Bella, "not as little as she used to be," revels in an autumn day-and in the patchwork coat her grandmother made for her, a coat that's on its last legs. Grams repeatedly suggests that the coat is ready for retirement, but Bella isn't having it, repeatedly dashing outdoors to romp through the leaves, pick apples from trees, and dash alongside migrating geese ("She sneaked and snooped. She honked and whistled. She flapped and flew"). The mutual adoration between Bella and Grams is abundantly evident in the tender exchanges Plourde (Merry Moosey Christmas) puts together, as well as in Gal's (Here Is the World) gauzy, multilayered images, which capture both Bella's near-inexhaustible energy and that of a woodland landscape in flux.
