I hit the library this past week and picked up some books for the kids with some really great autumn themes in them. Our library conveniently pulls all of the holiday books for us when the holidays come around so it makes it easy to put a seasonal basket together.
Ethan made a sign for our basket that said, “Happy Fall.” I wrote this out on a piece of paper for him and he practiced writing it for the basket. He drew a cute little jack-o-lantern on it because it was something that represented fall to him.
In our fall basket you will find the following books for the season:
Happy Haunting, Amelia Bedelia
Beauty & the Beaks
Minnie and Moo & the Thanksgiving Tree
Richard Scarry’s The First Thanksgiving of Low Leaf Worm
The Thanksgiving Door
Thanksgiving is Here
I look forward to switching out the books with the holiday season and getting a chance to read all of these great stories with the kids. I picked some beginning readers so we can work on Ethan’s reading skills, but I also picked books that I could read to them. Our favorite so far has definitely been, “Thanksgiving is Here” because it reminds us so much of our own crazy Thanksgiving dinners with family!
What are some of your favorite autumn reads? Do you have any books to recommend for our seasonal basket?
