11 Books About Fall for Your Toddler
Here are a few fall picture books that your child can enjoy. There are many autumn books for toddlers, but here are a few of my favorites that you can start with.
My Leaf Book
With her trademark bold, graphic style Monica Wellington has created a picture book about autumn, trees, and leaves. When the seasons change, a young girl visits the arboretum to collect fallen leaves and make a book with them. Brilliant illustrations show each variety of tree the girl encounters, from the common oak to the lesser-known gingko. Spreads silhouetting leaves up-close help young children learn to identify them. Like the girl in the book, young readers will be eager to make their very own leaf books. My Leaf Book
My Autumn Book
Crisp air and gray skies beckon a little girl to thoroughly investigate the outside world: chipmunks, squirrels, insects, and fallen leaves all hint that a change of season is coming. Young readers can explore the signs of autumn along with the adventurous child narrator in this charming conclusion to the series on the seasons. My Autumn Book
Ivan’s Great Fall
Ivan’s Great Fall is the story of a young boy reluctant to say goodbye to summer. Everything about summer makes him happy. Summer is endless days of play and nights full of stars. As summer turns to fall, he discovers autumn has a charm of its own. Fall is friends and school, trees full of brilliant colors and a chill in the air. Ivan’s Great Fall introduces children to the poetry of Keats, Dickinson, Sandburg, Bronte, and others. Excerpts from their writings, as seen through Ivan’s eyes, will open up poetry as a way for children to express their own feelings about the changing of seasons.
