Children's Books for Fall

I love seasonal books. It is fun to raid the library's shelves to find books on the season.

Nice fall books are particularly hard to find since so many refer to Halloween. In case you are looking for some good picture books to celebrate the autumn season, here is a few that made it to our favorites list.



Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf -Lois Ehlert
Fascinating information about a tree shared in beautiful collage.

Raccoons and Ripe Corn - Jim Arnosky
It is worth your time to search for the books by this author and illustrator.

This Way Home - Lisa Westberg Peters
Beautiful illustrations accompany the story of a song sparrow's migration.




Fall- Ron Hirschi
Nature photographs accompanied this book about autumn.

Leaves, Leaves, Leaves - Nancy Elizabeth Wallace
This book follows all the seasonal changes of a tree. My children loved the riddles.




Leaf Man - Lois Ehlert
Read this book and go take a walk with your children and look at leaves with new eyes.

Every Autumn Comes the Bear - Jim Arnosky
Another favorite by Jim Arnosky




The Apple Pie Tree - Zoe Hall
Follow an apple tree through the seasons.

Fletcher and the Falling Leaves - Julia Rawlinson
A silly story of a fox who was desperate to keep the leaves on the tree. My children loved it!

Why Do Leaves Change Color - Chris Arvetis
A simple explanation of why leaves change color.




How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin- Margaret McNamara
Did you know how to tell how many seeds are in a pumpkin? Me neither. Another of my children's favorite books.

Do you have any autumn book favorites?

  1. We love "In November" by Cynthia Rylant. My 2 year old asks for it by name! It has beautiful illustrations and refers to Thanksgiving Day.
