Fall Books to Read with Your Kids


It’s officially fall  and an extra exciting time when it comes to books at our house.  My little one is learning to read!  She read her first book last week, and I couldn’t be prouder.  Watching my daughter learn to read has been one of the neatest experiences.  It’s not always easy.  Let’s keep it real.  Helping my daughter learn to read is awesome and exciting but it does take patience.  And to be completely honest, those beginning readers do not offer the most interesting plot lines.  But motherhood does have a magical quality and with stars in my mommy eyes, I have never heard a more entertaining story than the one I heard last week.

Though our nightly bedtime reading is evolving into yet another stage, it still remains wonderful.  Honestly, this is my favorite part of the day!  Nothing feels better than cuddles and winding down after a busy day with a good book or two.

Lately, we have really been enjoying books about fall, autumn, leaves, and Halloween.  I thought I would share a few of our favorites.  

Since we have a thing for leaves, it should come as no surprise that we love these fall books that tell about the different types of trees and leaves and why they change colors in the fall.

My daughter’s teacher recommended this fall book.  We thoroughly enjoyed it and now recommend it to you!

Duck & Goose, Pete the Cat, and Clifford are family favorites so of course we had to check out the fall and Halloween editions.  

Fall and Fall Colors were great choices for our reading this year.  My daughter likes to point at the words and repeat simple readers such as these and the festive pictures made these two great choices.

The last three fall books each offer a little something extra.  Scratch and sniff fun, picture searching and flap books are a special touch to make reading and learning adventurous.  And tricking daddy into smelling the stinky skunk page is always a hilarious way to end the night.

It won’t be long before we break out the Christmas books. Who am I kidding?! We read those year round and would also keep up the Christmas tree if my daughter had her way! 

What fall books are your favorites?  Which ones should we make sure to read?  Leave your suggestions in the comments!
