Books Set in or About Autumn
The Dog Who Belonged to No One by Amy Hest
Technically not about autumn but has the most beautiful autumn colors and setting all throughout.
Bear Feels Sick by Karma Wilson
LOVE Bear. Love the fall colors in the illustrations. Can usually read this one with realism because in the fall my allergies kick into high gear. Fall and spring.
Mouse's First Fall by Lauren Thompson
Super cute illustrations but not much of a story. Wouldn't base an entire lesson around it but could be a nice additional selection.
Fall Mixed Up by Bob Raczka
Haven't read this one yet but it looks so cute! I am going to track it down.
Leaf Trouble by Jonathan Emmett
Ever so cute.
When The Leaf Blew In by Steve Metzger
I need to read this one again with PreK. Will I have time before winter?
Little Critter: The Fall Festival by Mercer Mayer
Little Critter was a favorite even before I knew I was going to be a librarian.
Leaves by David Ezra Stein
Another one I want to read again so I can count it on Goodreads. Love the illustrations and the efforts of the Bear.
Also ... check out this handy related post on starting graphing with the little ones!
The Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z by Kate Messner
Not a picture book ... but a fun one all the same. Maybe a read aloud for ... third grade and up. If you don't live in a place with lots of different trees that lose their leaves in the fall (like oh ... TEXAS) then make sure to include some images of what a fall season with color looks like in the pre-read booktalk. The kids might not know otherwise. Plus the author is so nice. :]
Do you have any favorites?
