Frolicking in Fall: 5 Favorite Fall Books

I'm linking up with Jenna and the 5 favorites today to share some of our favorite fall themed books:

 
Fletcher and the Falling Leaves - Love this whimsical book; it's finally available in my library today!


 
The Pumpkin Book - I love Gail Gibbons - just enough information, but not presented in a dry way.


 
Pick a Circle, Gather Squares: A Fall Harvest of Shapes - A fun book, a little busy in the pictures, but good for preschoolers.


 
Leaf Jumpers - Another fun, but informative book about the different types of fall leaves around


 
Applesauce Season - Just makes me want to fill my house with the smell of cooking apples.

And for good measure, this book always makes me think of fall.

 

What are your favorite fall books?

  1. Oh, I was going to put Fletcher on a kid's book list too! Because we're book-mates! But there's a couple here I've never got them, so they're going on my list.

  2. I adore children's books, but my faves are always halloween and christmas! Reading them with kiddos brings back some of the magic that I used to feel as a kid and allows you to see them experiencing it, too. AH! LOVE!

  3. Oh wow! We only know Ox-Cart Man and Ambrose has only recently gotten to a point where he is willing to listen to the entire thing. Illustrations in children's books go a long way for me as an adult and Ox-Cart Man has such nice ones. And I love the last page of that book especially.

    I'm going to have to check out the other books on your list. Where are you getting your info on quality kids books?!! Good library findings? Photographic memory for books read as a child???? I am impressed by your knowledge.

    1. Haha! A little of all... my grandmother was a Children's Librarian, I grew up at the library combined with the fact that we take stacks of books out each week combined with the "other customers bought" feature of Amazon.com.

      You can figure for every good book I find I've checked out two or three duds.

      I found out just a little bit ago that Donald Hall, the Ox-Cart Man writer, is actually a poet. I have a book of his work on reserve right now.

    2. Oh, I'm not surprised to hear that Donald Hall wrote poetry! Ox-cart man finishes with such a serene tone.

      I used to use the "other customers bought" feature all the time in high school! I forgot about it!
