It is a crisp cool autumn day and we have just got up from bed. What shall we wear? Well, to begin with, lets get out of our warm cozy pajamas. We will probably need to wear an undershirt, and we will definitely need some wooly socks to keep our feet warm. Should we put on jeans or leggings next? Or maybe we should wear the floral jumper.

When we go outside we will definitely need a jacket or coat, and a hat would probably be a good idea as well. I can wait to play in the leaves!

In this simple get clever little board book Marthe Jocelyn looks at the kinds of clothes that are worn during the autumn season. Little children are sure to enjoy this title because they can choose, all by themselves, which of the clothes in the book they would like to wear. A minimal text and wonderful collage illustrations combine to create an entertaining and engaging board book.
