What a great fall picture book and a perfect read aloud for a group of kids.... and they'll need to listen closely. In this rhyming and rhythmic brightly colored book everything is switched around. Listen closely.... "Apples turn orange. Pumpkins turn red." But even better, "Touchdowns are hit. Home runs are kicked." Every fun part of fall is fractured from what you wear to what you eat. At the end of the book the author invites you to go back and find all the things that are wrong. See if the kids can spot them as you read along. Trick or treating will never be the same.
