As the days grow shorter and the leaves change colors, Annabelle and her friends get ready to go back to school and enjoy the best fall ever! From gathering school supplies and getting a checkup from her doctor and dentist, to dancing, bobbing for apples and riding in a hot air balloon, each day is full of colorful adventures. Join Annabelle, Mingo Rose the Elephant, Leonard the Lion, Rico the Cheetah, Glory the Zebra and Gazzie the Gazelle as they learn shapes, colors and numbers, and share in their fun at the annual Fall Festival. Annabelle is a colorful giraffe whose optimism is as bright as her spots. She’s the star of the Annabelle’s Best Ever series by author and illustrator Rhonda Atkins Leonard. Annabelle always looks for the silver lining. She wants to make every day the best ever, and she encourages her eclectic group of friends to do the same. Together, they are preparing for a lifetime of adventures and teach lessons along the way to their young fans – to love their friends, for instance, or that it is normal to be scared. These beautiful watercolor illustrations and magnificent stories are sure to bring a smile to every child and to spark their imagination.
