Our Favorite Fall Books for Children!
From Joyous Home’s bookshelves… posting this makes me want to go to the library. 🙂
Too Many Pumpkins, by Linda White
We found this treasure several years ago, and it has been a favorite ever since. The children want to read it over and over again! Rebecca Estelle absolutely hates pumpkins. What is she going to do when she finds them growing all over her yard?
The Busy Little Squirrel, by Nancy Tafuri
This is a fun book to read with your young ones – Fall is here, and the little squirrel is too busy preparing for winter to play with the other animals. The repetitive lines make it fun for the children to join in with you!
How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, by Marjorie Priceman
This has become another top favorite! Making an apple pie is easy… if the market is open. What do you do when the market is closed? You travel around the world! This is wonderfully fun to read. Read the story, then make an apple pie… see if everyone can remember where each ingredient came from.
From Seed to Pumpkin, by Wendy Pfeffer
Fletcher and the Falling Leaves, by Julia Rawlinson
In November, by Cynthia Rylant
Miss Hickory, by Carolyn Sherwin Bailey

Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf, by Louis Ehlert
A creative watercolor collage and pieces of actual seeds, fabric, wire, and roots are in this rich introduction to the life of a maple tree. Another great science lesson book!
Pumpkin Moonshine, Tasha Tudor

Leaf Man, by Louis Ehlert
The fall winds are blowing, and leaf man is drifting with them. Where will he end up landing? This is a fun read for little ones!
