What We are Reading Wednesday: Books about Fall

Is it too soon?  Or are you one of those people who, like me, can already smell the pumpkin spice?

Here are some of our favorite books about the fall season:

The Very Busy Squirrel by Nancy Tafuri – This book is great for the younger set but, I guarantee my kids will still ask me to read it out loud 100 times next month!

Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert – This is such a beautiful book.  And kids of all ages will love making a leaf man when you are outside.  Simple fun at its best.

Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington – Great book about apples for city kids! Find out how the apples get from the farm right into the city farmer’s market.

Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin by Tad Hills – Another great book for the younger set that I know I will still be reading out loud this year. Some of these “baby books” are just too good to pack up just yet.

Pumpkin Jack by Will Hubbell – This is one of our top favorites!  Follow along with a boy and the life cycle of a pumpkin.

We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger – Great book to inspire an outdoor fall adventure!

Apples by Gail Gibbons – I love Gail Gibbons nonfiction books!  Great illustrations and detailed information.

Apple Picking Day by Candace Ransom – A sweet simple story about a family who goes apple picking!

Leaf Jumpers by Carole Gerber – Who doesn’t love to jump in the leaves?!
