Wild Child 
By Lynn Plourde 
Illustrated by Greg Couch 

Review by: Chris Burnett

     From homes everywhere comes the familiar call, "Time for Bed!" Well, autumn child has a few requests before settling in: a song which mother earth finds amongst the familiar sounds of autumn, a snack which mother provides from the bountiful harvest, pajamas of the most special sort and, of course, "A kiss first. I need a kiss, a smooch and a smack before hitting the sack." At last mother can rest. But, no, just as she settles in - Winter Child blows in! 
      Children will love seeing themselves portrayed in the trying just to stay up for a few more minutes. Adults will appreciate mother earth's loving ways and the opportunity to discuss the change of seasons. 
      From the rich pumpkin of the beginning endpaper, spattered with dandelion seeds floating on the wind, to the crisp blue's and white's of winter at the end, Greg Couch's wondrous illustrations bring autumn alive. The wonder and exuberance of the child is captured in the colors of the season making this book's illustrations a sight to behold.
      Beautiful illustrations and perfectly descriptive language make Wild Child the perfect story when quiet time rolls around this fall season. Use it to spark discussion of the harvest, the colors of the season, the animals readying for winter and to promote anticipation for the season to come! 
      I recommend this book for children aged 3 to 2nd grade.
