Autumn Books We are Reading

At the changing of seasons, we bring out a new selection of books from our collection and head to the local library to find new seasonal books.  Here is a gathering of some of our favorites this autumn.

The Pumpkin Book
The Pumpkin Book explains the planting, cultivating, and harvesting of pumpkins using bold illustrations and simple text.

Children will learn how various animals prepare for hibernation by stuffing themselves with food so that they can survive during the dormant months and how these animals prepare safe spots, like dens and burrows

Pumpkin, Pumpkin
A young boy plants a pumpkin seed in the spring and, after watching it grow all summer, carves a face in it for Halloween! He also saves some seeds that he will plant again next spring. We love the illustrations in this book!

The Busy Little Squirrel
A well loved book in our family by afavorite author/illustrator, Nancy Tafuri. Follow little squirrel as he rushes past other animals to stock up for a long winter.

As the days grow colder, I hope you and your little ones have many opportunities to snuggle close and read together.
