Autumn Books Your Child is Sure to FALL in Love With...

Celebrate Autumn's cold crisp air, bright colors, and changing of the season by cuddling up with your child to read a book they are sure to love! Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year, and it just feels so cozy and inviting to wrap up in a blanket and read with your favorite little pumpkin plopped on your lap. This list of books is most appropriate for children 4-8 years old. Naturally, as a reading tutor, I gravitate towards materials in this age range because I love to teach students to read!

At home, one of the most important things you can do as a parent is to make time to read with your children, spend time talking about the books, help them apply the stories to the world around them, and create positive experiences around reading. I love to box up my books and rotate them out as the seasons and holidays change throughout the year so that the books seem exciting, relevant, and new each time we take them out. In my opinion, there is no better way to bond over the changing seasons in our lives than through stories and books.

I hope you enjoy this list of books as much as my students, family, and I do each year! Reading about nature and the changing seasons is a great way to build vocabulary, knowledge, and reveal the joy that Autumn offers.

If you find yourself busy with other children and or all the other daily duties of being a parent and unable to spend much extra time doing the reading with your children needed to help them advance in their reading skills, I am here to help. Click the button below and register for a FREE reading assessment today! The evaluation allows us to see if we might be a good fit, create an individualized learning plan for your child, and help them progress in their reading by meeting weekly via Zoom. Also, please know that tutoring is not just for students who might struggle. Many parents who hire me are looking to challenge their strong readers beyond what a teacher can accommodate in a classroom with such a varying level of skills in reading. My clients reveal that they gain peace of mind and have a huge weight lifted off their shoulders knowing their child receives reading instruction each week from a trained professional!

1. Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert

This story is so fun because it sparks the young reader's imagination through illustrations made of actual leaves. Each time I read it with my students, they want to go out and create their own leaf man! What a great way to encourage kids to go outside and play!

2. Awesome Autumn by Bruce Goldstone

This book is full of fun facts about all the things people learn to love about Autumn (the changing leaves, the activities, the holidays, crops, food, bright leaves to jump in, and more!) My daughter is only one and a half, but she loves books like this with real photos, and I can see her little mind turning and making connections to the colorful images on each page.

3. Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson

Before even reading it, I fell in love with this book because I thought the illustrations were so beautiful! Beyond that, it has a great storyline and is educational as Fletcher is worried about his favorite tree as it begins to lose its leaves and discovers the workings of nature.

4. Goodbye Summer Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak

Join a brother and sister as they stroll through nature and discover all the magical things that the upcoming season has to offer. This book is a fun way to get your child excited about going for a walk and seeing if they can spot anything the characters visited in the book!

5. Little Critter Fall Storybook Collection: 7 Classic Stories by Mercer Mayer

Mercer Mayer's Little Critter books are a favorite among my students. Students can relate to the stories in the book, such as when they visit a pumpkin patch at the fall festival. It's pure magic for a child when they can read about something like a pumpkin patch in a book and then visit one. Imagine the excitement as they put the pieces together and learn how to make sense of the world around them.
