 Through 'TRACKLE' found this lovely ref to my fall book. Thanks Elisse ( for using 'IT'S FALL' in your library's display!

.......There are two more fun fall books for children that we’ve found over the years that I want to share with you. I think they are unique and fabulous because of their illustration styles.
The first book is called It’s Fall! written by Linda Glaser, the cut-paper illustrations by Susan Swan.

It was the was the three dimensional cut-paper artwork that really grabbed my attention. Being a scrapbooker, I was fascinated by her designs. The illustrator layered hand painted papers. When she hand painted the paper, she was able to give the effect of depth and dimension, not to mention the gorgeous colors of autumn.
Paper layering is a scrapbooking technique that I have used several times on my pages, but not with the fabulous results that the illustrator had here. She featured Canadian geese, Monarch butterflies, and squirrels, all fabulously detailed with layered paper. My favorites were the tiny nesting owls.
The author and illustrator have also teamed up to produce books for the other three seasons. I plan to purchase them just for the amazing illustrations alone.
