I love reading books and hearing my kids read books. I get excited when new seasons are near because I love finding new books to read. Seasonal books are a great way to learn and discover the season you are about to experience. I have included a list of fall books for younger school aged kids.
Fall is one of my ultimate favorite seasons and I find myself loving everything fall. I love the crisp feel in the air and the smells that come a long with the season. The colors are so warming and vibrant. There is so much to experience in nature during this season.
