It's beginning to look a lot like FALL here in Texas! Woohoo!
Normally when I post books here, I've done loads of research (and library trips) to curate a perfect collection. This time I simply chose from those we already owned and loved. If you look at them closely, you'll see just how well-loved they are... which makes them the best, time-tested choices.
🍁 Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White - This was recommended to us when we thought we had pumpkins growing (sadly, the vine died). It's such a delightful story that my kids have asked for again and again!
🍁 Sophie's Squash by Pat Zietlow Miller - This story of Sophie and her pet squash, Bernice, is just adorable (and laugh-out-loud funny) with the sweetest twist at the end.
🍁 Pumpkin Jack by Will Hubbell - Another recently recommended to us and so perfect for pumpkin season!
🍁 Ox-Cart Man by Donald Hall & Barbara Cooney - This is a classic in every sense, giving a lovely peek into the life of a New Englander as he travels and trades through the seasons.
🍁 Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson - Our 4-year-old's current favorite, Fletcher is a fox who doesn't understand what's happening to his beloved tree when it turns brown and loses leaves. A tender, beautiful story.
🍁 The Pumpkin Book by Gail Gibbons - We're big fans of Gail Gibbons and her simple explanations and drawings. This one is no different.
🍁 The Deer in the Wood by Laura Ingalls Wilder & Renee Graef - The final two are from My First Little House Books series, which we adore. These are the perfect introduction to the Little House chapter books.
🍁 County Fair by Laura Ingalls Wilder & Renee Graef - This is based on the true story of Laura Ingalls Wilder's husband Almanzo as a little boy at the county fair.
