Favorite Fall Read Alouds

I gotta say, I’m not really a pumpkin spice girl, but I LOVE FALL.   The beautiful leaves, the crisp air, college football, and, of course, the BOOKS.

Today’s post is just a quick hit: my favorite books for fall!

         The Fierce Yellow Pumpkin    A Margaret Wise Brown classic with gorgeous language and illustrations.


Room on the Broom – Julia Donaldson’s (author of The Gruffalo) playful and rhyming adventure with a charming witch.  Bonus: Amazon Prime streams a great video version of this book!


Grow Your Own Soup by John Malam is an unique take on the traditional pumpkin book, as the title implies.



Pumpkins by Ken Robbins uses beautiful photography to illustrate the life cycle of the pumpkin.


Lois Ehlert’s gorgeous collages delight little readers who eagerly point out the shapes the leaves make in Leaf Man.
Kids will definitely relate to Harriet and her desire to keep her candy to herself in Harriet’s Halloween Candy by Nancy Carlson.
