The days are getting shorter and cooler, and fall is definitely in the air. Leaves are turning 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! Following are some books to share with children about this beautiful season.
Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak
This book shows 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. The illustrations are beautifully done.
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 poems and 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 photo collages, it’s a great way to learn about fall. Also included is a list of fall activities and craft projects.
