Fall with Lily and Milo

Clavis. (Lily and Milo). Aug. 2019. 32p. Tr $14.95. ISBN 9781605374598.
PreS-Gr 1– The bunny and mouse duo introduced in Looking for Colors with Lily and Milo are back for new adventures that take place on an autumn day. Lily is the sensible partner who explains everything to excitable, adventurous Milo. Lily points out an owl, a spider web, a snail, an owl and many other items that one may find in the woods/forest but also imparts the wisdom that they cannot pick mushrooms because they should be left in the forest. The text is written in such a way that as Lily is explaining many things to Milo, questions are being asked of the readers as well; “What should Lily and Milo wear? Which leaves would you choose? But where is the little spider?” These types of interactive features allow young children to stay engaged within the text. The illustrations are bright in color and outlined in black against neutral backdrops, which brings the story to life and captures the feel of a fall day. The story ends with Lily bringing the leaves and pinecones home to create a fall centerpiece and in full character, Milo has decided to do something a bit more eccentric.
VERDICT A brightly colored seasonal read-aloud that will engage children and allow for natural questioning and conversation
