Florian, Douglas. Autumnblings. Illustrated by Douglas Florian. Greenwillow, 2003. ISBN 0060092793. $16.89. 48 pp. Reviewer: Marsha D. Broadway Reading Level: Preschool; Primary; Rating: Outstanding; Genre: Contemporary realistic poetry; Subject: Autumn--Juvenile Poetry; Wordsmith Florian explores with incisive poems the ups, downs and turn-a-rounds that capture the colorful change of season and those mixed feelings that most people experience as summer is put away and crisp autumn is greeted. Florian has proved himself a masterful poet, and this companion volume to Winter Eyes and Summersaults is among his best. A great read-aloud for home, classroom, or library, and a great springboard to encourage young poets to capture their own observations and feelings.
