About the Author:

Fran Hawk’s favorite things are children, books, and writing. Writing children’s books is her dream come true, because it combines all three. Fran resides in South Carolina, and when the famous Hunley submarine was raised from Charleston harbor, she wrote a children’s book about the event. One autumn afternoon, Fran was walking as leaves drifted down all around her. She realized she only knew the names of a few of them, so she got some leaf books from the library and worked on identifying them. Then, she thought it would be interesting to write a children’s book that would make it fun to learn the names of leaves. The result was Count Down to Fall.

A Few Reviews:

Children will be drawn to examine the expressive images of animals and find additional ones along the detailed border featuring close-ups of the tree’s bark. This attention to detail makes the book more than a simple counting or seasonal book with both the four-line stanzas and art offering simple facts. – School Library Journal

A good choice for cross-curricular use. – Booklist

This backwards counting book is written in simple rhyme describing facts about trees, seeds and leaves. The colorful illustrations inform the text with animals in their natural settings. – Puget Sound Council for the Review of Children’s Media
