This whimsical picture book captures the wonders of fall and the love between a grandma and granddaughter. A perfect read aloud to celebrate fall and winter!

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 is the perfect book to celebrate the season!
