The end of Summer.

Beautiful, wonderful Summer is coming to an end. We went on many adventures this Summer and made many amazing memories. I always get a little sad when Summer starts fading but then I remember how much I really do love Fall! And of course, books. So here are some good Fall books I recommend for your little readers!
Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert 
I love the illustrations. A fun activity is to go on a leaf walk after reading the story, and make your own leaf people or objects!

Apples by Gail Gibbons
The text is a little long, but it is very informative and great for learning about apples. The recording above is a YouTube video I made reading this story.

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves by Lucille Colandro

Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert
I made a YouTube video (above) reading this book.

In the Middle of Fall by Kevin Henkes
This one won a Caldecott Medal. I love the painted illustrations and the text is simple.

Apples and Pumpkins by Anne Rockwell
This is another favorite of mine because it really works for ages toddlers-2nd graders. And since I love it, I also made a storytelling video with craft about it (above).

Hocus Pocus, It's Fall! by Anne Sibley O'Brien
I first noticed this book as a Children's Librarian.
The cover grabbed my attention. I know they say don't judge a book by its cover, but you can with this one.
It teaches kids about the seasonal change, and how the animals prepare for Winter.

The Biggest Pumpkin Ever by Jane E. Gerver 
and Steven Kroll
I am a sucker for books that are adorable because sometimes we should just read for fun! This story is about what happens when two mice want the same pumpkin. 

Wonderfall by Michael Hall
This takes children through the changes a tree undergoes through each season. It has blended words and is an informative picture book. 

Bella's Fall Coat by Lynn Plourde
Bella's grandma makes her a special coat so she can enjoy the sights of Fall like running through crinkling leaves and enjoying the company of geese.
