Why should you read Autumn themed books with your kids?

Seasons bring opportunities to learn new words, explore different concepts, and even have cool sensory experiences. At our house, we love to start off each new season reading books together!

Reading has so many benefits! Here are a few of them!

  • Kids build language and listening skills as they read books about Fall.
  • They learn about new people and places and stimulate their imaginations as they read.
  • Children develop special bonds with their caregivers when they read together.
  • Reading together regularly helps kids cultivate a love of learning (and books!)
  • Kids increase their attention spans and self discipline listening to books read aloud.
  • Reading just makes life more fun!

There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all. – Jacqueline Kennedy

What are the best Fall picture books for preschoolers?

Some books are more informational while others are silly and playful. I think it’s great to have a combination of both in your home. The books in this post are ones we love and have to read over and over again. They are divided by category of book so that you can find the themes easily. The themes are leaves, pumpkins, acorns, and apples.

You don’t necessarily need 50 books about Fall in your home, but you can explore these titles by watching them read aloud on YouTube, swapping books with friends, and checking them out from your local library. There are a dozen other books I could add, but I kept this list simple and only added my favorites.
