Fall Books to Love

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – Anne of Green Gables

It’s still hot down here in the South and I’m anxious to feel those crisp fall mornings. Apple orchards, pumpkin patches, fall festivals, cozy sweaters, late night football games and everything slowing down from a busy summer. No wonder so many people love the Fall!

So in honor of this changing of seasons, we wanted to share some of our favorite fall books for our children in hopes that you’d pick up a few, so run by the library or click the pictures below to get them online.then gather your little ones, snuggle in a blanket and enjoy some fun, thoughtful, funny and spooky fall stories.

1. Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert

This book is visually stunning, and tells a wonderful story of a leaf man floating in the wind as the season changes. It’s a great kick start to fall book and makes a wonderful read and activity follow up book. Once you finish your kids will be dying to build their own leaf man or lady!

2. Pick a Pumpkin by Patria Toht

We really loved the bright abstract illustrations in this book. It’s a great book to read before you hit the pumpkin patch this fall, as it takes you from getting your pumpkin and all the steps leading to your Jack-O-Lantern.

3. The Berenstain Bears and the Prize Pumpkin by Stan and Jan Berenstain

This sweet book teaches that winning isn’t everything and being thankful what you have is the sweetest thing.

4. Haunted Party by Iza Trapani

Oh man! This little book has been a favorite this fall already. Lots of counting and fun rhymes all mixed with spooky creatures at the ghost’s haunted party.

5. It’s Pumpkin Day, Mouse by Laura Numeroff

This book is perfect for your little ones, a quick, easy read with sweet little pumpkin pictures.

6. Room on the Broom by Julie Donaldson

If you haven’t heard of room on the broom, I’m not sure where you have been. This is a wonderfully written rhyming book of a little ginger haired witch and all her friends she picks up along the way. It’s really fantastic, and Netflix currently has a little cartoon of it as well. We love reading the book and watching the show as well.

7. I’m the Scariest Thing in the Castle by Kevin Sherry

This book is a tried and true story at our house as you can tell by its worn appearance. It’s a fun little book for little ones with a big “scare” at the end. All my kids love to jump and scream in excitement with this one.

8. Franklin’s Halloween by Paulette Bourgeois

This is a simple Halloween story about a sweet little turtle and his Halloween party adventure. Cute animals, in cute costumes, enough said.

9. The Fierce Yellow Pumpkin by Margaret Wise Brown

Its a pumpkin coming of age story… dun dun dunnnn…. well, really it is. The summer finds us with a sweet yellow pumpkin who wants to grow and be fierce enough to scare the field mice.

10. Boo to You by Lois Ehlert

Oh why, Hello there Lois Ehlert! You’ve made our list again. She does such a wonderful job using Gods creations to build the images in her books.and my kids LOVE this story as well. Make sure to Watch Out for that Cat!

So head over to your local library, grab a couple books, and gather the kids, cuddle up and let’s dive into some wonderful fall books!
