We love reading. Everyone should read. Your kids should read, you should read and you should read to your kids. Help instill a love of books in your children by reading these fantastic fall books to your kids.
For autumn we’re advising apple-themed fall books for each day! When you read to your kids, you’re doing so much more than telling a story. You’re giving your child the gift of your time. That is truly priceless. Children love to learn about the seasons, and they’ll long remember that it’s apple season when future autumn breezes blow.
These are our favorite fall books that you are certain enjoy reading to your child. Visit your local bookstore and make an adventure of finding seasonal books. Libraries are also a great source for seasonal books. Read them together start a family tradition. Your child will look forward to the change of seasons and sharing books with you.
