Fall has never been my favorite season, I admit. I am learning to love it more and more every year as I embrace all it offers with the idea of hygge, the cider and pumpkins and all. Having fall-themed delightful picture books to read aloud to my youngest child helps. So here are some I’ve found to become traditional autumn reads. So get some blankets and cozy up for them!
My review of the above book is here. It has a sequel too!
I love to read picture book bios anytime of year, but especially in October to set the stage for celebrating great lives as part of Heroween as an alternative to Halloween. I just found this book below and loved it. It’s the true story of Mother Jones and her march with factory children to protest child labor. So inspiring! I have a list of other great picture book bios over here.
I also like to honor Martin Luther in October, since he is a hero for being part of the Reformation, which paved the way for Joseph Smith, and he nailed his famous 95 theses on the door on Oct. 31. The picture book below looks so interesting. I haven’t read it but will get it from my public library.
