I'm Ivan McGivan,
And I love summer -
With baseball,
No school,
Staying up late,
Vacations and all.

Ivan's Great Fall is the story of a young boy reluctant to say
goodbye to summer. Everything about summer makes him happy. "I love to rise in the summer morn / when the birds sing on every tree." Summer is endless days of play and nights full of stars. As summer turns to fall, he discovers autumn has a charm of its own. "I do like pumpkins / all carved to scare, / and Halloween, / and leaves in big piles / everywhere." Fall is friends and school, trees full of brilliant colors and a chill in the air.

Ivan’s Great Fall introduces children to the poetry of Keats, Dickinson, Sandburg, Bronte and others. Excerpts from their writings, as seen through Ivan’s eyes, will open up poetry as a
way for children to express their own feelings about the changing of seasons. This book includes longer excerpts and brief bios of each author.
