Fall Books for Kids
cute kid's books on autumn

Listed below are the best fall books for kids. We just love books about fall. It's such a fun time of year to teach about---so multi-sensory!  And apparently, authors like to write fall books for children because there are quite a few of them!

We've tried to trim down our list to just include what we feel are the best autumn books, but we are definitely open to your input. If you have some favorite books about fall that we  have not listed, please let us know.
