That’s right! I am actually blogging. There is a chance I hadn’t even signed into my website for 4 months. Life has been full. But, there is only one thing that could make me sign in and that is… it is September! September reminds me of all the lovely things we have to look forward to. We have cool evenings, pumpking everything, cozy fires in the wood stove and of course, endless hours reading aloud. I wanted to take some time to share some of my favorite Autumn Readalouds. It was hard to choose which ones to share! There are so many good ones.
So grab a quilt and snuggle up together to read some of my favorites. Your local library should have these or you can click on the link and it will pull it up on amazon for you.
Pumpkin and Apple Read Alouds
This adorable book tells the story of a girl who is an apple farmer and the many ways she sells and uses her apples. Great for ages 2+.
This may be one of my all time favorite children’s book. I got teary the first time I read it. It is full of imagination, childhood and love. I won’t reveal what happens, but I will simply say that I originally checked this out from the library. I then ordered it to own the moment I stopped reading.
This tells the story of a farmer and his family as they prepare for winter. Not only do I love it because of the educational value in provides as we learn the process of how a farm works (well, used to work), it is also beautifully illustrated. We have read this one numerous times and it remains a favorite.
Get your Kleenex ready. This sweet story is about a retired man who decides to take up hunting as a hobby. His hobby becomes more of a walk in the woods as he falls in love with the animals. I love this story so much and tear up every time.
This story is about a curious fox who watches his favorite tree transform. This is another beautiful illustrated book with a surprise on the last page.
We have fun with this book every year. We go on a walk and collect items to make our own leaf men after reading it.
This book is about a girl who takes a walk and notices signs of fall along the way. It’s bright illustrations make it super engaging for kids.
This book has quickly become one of my favorites of all time. A young girl watches the animals prepare for winter from her hiding spot. It is one of the most breathtaking illustrations I have seen that is matched with excellent writing.
Halloween Read Alouds
I am pretty picky about my Halloween books, but there are some really cute ones out there.
This book is so so cute. It is about a little girl who’s imagination runs wild one afternoon. I originally found a copy of this at a thrift store. It was in poor shape, so I ended up ordering another copy later. I love it.
I am not going to lie that I don’t find Mercy Watson books that funny, but my kids sure do. We love to read this aloud every fall and their giggles remind me that perhaps Mercy is much funnier than I give her credit for.
Little Blue Truck books are so well loved in our home. This book is interactive with lift-the-flaps and so cute.
This tells the story of two mice who work very hard to grow the largest pumpkin in their town. They end the growing season with trick-or-treating with friends.
These are just some of the books we love to read during the fall season! If you want to see even more books that we love for the fall season, visit my website!
