Animals in Fall: Preparing for Winter is an installment of the Fall's Here! series, part of the Cloverleaf Books collection. The book is divided in four chapters in which children learn about what animals do during fall. Animals in fall get ready for winter. Some migrate and some hibernate. Gray whales swim from Alaska all the way down to Mexico. Black bears look for dens and sleep. Some animals change during fall. Snowshoe hares change color. The animals are ready when winter is here.
The illustrations are lovely and easy to understand. Children can easily start learning about animal behavior during fall with this story.
