Explore the Magic and Beauty of Autumn


Reviewed By Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite

That Is How Things Are by Mrs. D. is a book with two short stories, The Autumn Wind and The Kitten and the Sparrow, which explore the magic and beauty of autumn. 

In the first story, readers get to see the gray-silver headed wind rising from the hammock to see the garden painted with golden hues. The wind was disturbed by the beauty around him and annoyed that autumn is always in a hurry. He got angry and blew chilly gusts, shaking the trees around and scaring the leaves. 

The little kitten watches the cold wind tossing a single leaf, and the kitten wonders who will win; the wind or the leaf? The kitten is worried about his friends, the squirrel and the sparrow. The sparrow tells the kitten that he is moving to the woods with his relatives and they will fly to a warmer place during winter. Now the little kitten wants to know what winter is. Will the kitten be able to understand what winter is?

What appealed the most to me about the book is, apart from introducing the seasons to young readers in an interesting way, the author blends the two short stories and ties them together beautifully. The illustrations are stunning and colorful and I like the way the author has given the wind a powerful personality, making it easy for readers to connect with it. What a beautiful book for parents to read out during bedtime and what a charming book to use for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries, especially during autumn!

Look Inside!
