When the weather starts cooling down, it's so nice to enjoy a bit more time snuggling up close with your little ones (while they hopefully still enjoy it and allow it), and share some fun fall books and stories with them too. Whether you are taking a break while enjoying the bright bold colors of autumn in a field or on a family picnic, or putting your kids to bed all cozy and warm after a full day of autumn adventures, here are some great reads you can enjoy all together, and I hope you will share your favorite fall kid's titles with us here too!
Wonderful seasonally relevant and nature inspired fall books:
· Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper
· Frederick The Mouse by Leo Leoni
· Fletcher and Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson and Tiphanie Beeke
· The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger
· Jack - The Story of a Leaf by Kathie Knerl and Sharon Grey
· Strega Nona's Harvest by Tomie dePaola
· Big Pumpkin by Erica Siverman and S.D. Schindler
Some fun Halloween-themed reads:
· The Night Before Halloween by Natasha Wing and Cynthia Fisher
· Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
· Ten Timid Ghosts by Jennifer O'Connell
And finally, my two favorite children's books to read around Thanksgiving:
· Thanks for Thanksgiving by Julie Markes and Doris Barrette
· Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? by Dr. Seuss
In addition to all these, we love checking out the local library and my daughter's school library for new stories to read together that are seasonally relevant. There are some cool science books, which explain how seasons work, which my daughter finds fascinating. She also loves to find books based on her favorite characters, related to seasons and holidays, such as Curious George Goes to a Costume Party, Olivia and the Haunted Hotel, The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat, etc..
What are your favorite fall children's books?
