You want to feed your child’s imagination, help them learn and grow, and let them explore the shift in seasons. As a supermom, you want a way to do it all at once. Good news! You can. One way to get your kids excited about the fall season while teaching them valuable lessons is with a few autumn-inspired books. Here are some suggestions for toddlers.
Halloween Day by Anne Rockwell and Lizzy Rockwell
If your kids like dressing up for Halloween, they’ll love the illustrations in this book. From cats to pumpkins, the classmates in this story all have different costumes they choose for the school party.
The Busy Little Squirrel by Nancy Tafuri
What does a squirrel do when fall comes around? He gets ready for winter! This book follows a squirrel that is doing just that. With no time to play with his other animal friends (like the mice, frogs, and dogs), he starts collecting nuts to hide for winter.
Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington
Whether your child is 2 years old or 6, they’re sure to like this one. Annie is an apple farmer who is keen on making yummy things with the apples from her orchard. She then goes on to sell her items at the farmers market.
Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert
There’s no better way to know the seasons are changing than to watch the leaves on the trees change. This book is all about planting a maple tree and then watching it grow and change from season to season.
There are plenty of books for toddlers about the fall season, and chances are your kids will love them all. So grab a book, cuddle up on the couch and let the autumn reading begin.
