Book Recommendation: Wild Child

Wild Child by Lynne Plourde and Illustrated by Greg Couch

This amazing poem of Mother Earth putting her child (Autumn) to bed is a continued favorite around here! In years past, I have pulled this book out near the end of fall to welcome Winter (the child who awakens just as Autumn finally dozes off to sleep), but since this story is so much a part of the fabric of our lives, it has made its appearance at the start of the season this time around. I highly recommend it, not just for the sweet tale, but also for its rich imagery both in words and actual illustrations!
