autumnal reading for children

There's nothing like a cozy blanket, a cup of hot tea (or warm milk), and a good book. We frequent our local library once a fortnight, and as North's language comprehension increases, so does his joy for reading. I tried to find a some books that introduce Autumn themes to him, and the following are a few of my favourites.

The Bold Boy- Malachy Doyle
Pumpkin Soup- Helen Cooper

Autumn- Gerda Muller

We Gather Together- Wendy Pfeffer

Read away!

Tate loves the Gerda Muller books. He studies the pages. To answer your question, I got those soy rock crayons when I was in the States. Sorry. But the boys are not to interested in them. I bring them out every once in a blue moon, but still no luck. I will keep trying with Tate, he is just not to interested in coloring yet and Quinn always has a pencil in hand.

They look like beautiful Autumn books Meagan, I'll be on the look out next time at the library. I just love going to the library with my girls and the adventure of finding new books to read. I have seen those rock crayons before on a website and found a link in Australia you might find useful http://www.thetribestore.com.au/shop/crayon-rocks/. xo

Thankyou for the list of Autumn books Meagan. And you are so right about the cozy blanket, warm drink and good book. And of course, the cuddles!

My daughter is 2, and she is starting to really "get" books and storylines. It is so much fun to read with her! I'll have to remember these books.

I will have to see if I can find some of those books at our library once fall comes around.

It's a cold and rainy day here and we have spent the morning reading on the couch under a blanket and having some tea. Nice and cozy.
