When the days start getting shorter and cooler, it means fall is in the air. Leaves begin to turn shades of yellow, orange, and red, carpeting the ground and changing the landscape. It’s easy to fall in love with fall and its beautiful colors!
Here are some books to share with children about this magical season.
- Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak: This book depicts the transition from summer to fall as a young girl and her dog walk through the woods and through town, noticing the changes as one season slowly becomes the next. It’s a novel approach, and it works beautifully, both in concept and illustration.
- Wonderfall by Michael Hall: The title alone—Wonderfall—is a good indication of what is to come in this collection of poems about autumn. By substituting –fall for –ful, as in “Beautifall” and “Plentifall,” the author introduces the changing season through short poems and bold digital art that looks like cut-off paper collages.
- Awesome Autumn by Bruce Goldstone: This awesome book is packed with information—fun facts and scientific explanations about the season. Illustrated with colorful photos and photos collages, this book is a great way to learn about fall. Also included is a list of fall activities and craft projects.
