Our Favorite Fall Books

One of my favorite parts of any season is going to the library to check out seasonally appropriate reading materials. Snow books in winter, flowers and birds and gardens in spring, and beach books for the summer.

But of all the seasons, I do believe I love Fall the best. And trust me- there is a boatload of wonderful picture books out there for you to snuggle down and read with your children! Here are a few of our favorites.


It's Fall! by Linda Glaser. Sweet rhymes accompany beautiful cut paper illustrations. The text focuses on the changes taking place in nature, and a list of fall activity ideas is printed on the back page.

The Apple Pie Tree by Zoe Hall. Again, gorgeous illustrations follow this story of two little girls and their apple tree. My kids loved this especially because we have our own apple "pie" tree. It was fun to reference it while picking our own crop and baking with the gathered fruit.

Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert. All of the illustrations in this book are made from photo copies of actual leaves the author collected. Visually stunning {notice a theme in all the books listed here? ha ha}, the prose is equally enchanting.

Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin by Tad Hills. This sweet board book is appropriate for the youngest littles in your life, but will also make your older kids giggle. Super simple, but super cute.

The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger. If you read only one autumn themed book to your children this year, let it be this one. I love that the backgrounds of illustrations are lined notebook paper- nothing says Fall like school supplies. And I love the story about a little leaf who isn't quite ready to let go of his tree yet.

Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds. Though not technically a fall specific book, the orange and black and white illustrations sure give it an October vibe. This is the book that got my kids into eating carrots {God bless Aaron Reynolds!}. Parents will be as entertained by it as their kids are.

Fancy Nancy: Apples Galore! by Jane O'Connor. My little diva loves a good Fancy Nancy story, and this one about Nancy's class trip to an apple orchard is enjoyable. Your child will be able to add the names of several apple varieties to their expanding vocabularies.

I'd love to know- what Fall titles do you and your kids love best?
