Our Favorite Books for Autumn Enjoyment

To me, Fall is marked by the first of October, or at the very least mid-September. We don’t have a ton of Fall books, but I’ve been slowly remedying that. I recently found another bloggers list of 50 Fall Favorites, which is expanding our own inventory, as well as listening to the Read-Aloud Revival podcast (dangerous stuff!)

Some people are drawn to the modern, more quirky books for children: No matter how hard I try, I am not one of those people. I want beautiful pictures, I want words like poetry, I want a story that doesn’t leave me. If you’re like that, then this list is definitely for you.

Now mind you, this list is not all-inclusive: I did leave out those that are more specific to Thanksgiving (another post, another day). I don’t know if it’s the colors in Fall books, or the stories of families hunkering down for the winter after bringing in the Harvest, but these are some of my absolute favorites to read.
