Hello, Fall!

By Deborah Diesen

A grandfather and his granddaughter find beauty and joy in all of the different changes that fall brings. Honk with the geese, laugh with the mums, and tell your secrets to the pumpkins with Hello, Fall! by Deborah Diesen. This is a great introduction to all things fall for little ones!


Yellow time by Lauren Stringer

Preschool Books about Fall

I love how Lauren Stringer refers to autumn as “Yellow Time” in this next preschool book about fall. As the trees cover the world in a blanket of yellow, people and creatures alike get ready for fall. Another great fall book with so many references to how our world changes in the season of autumn.


fletcher and the falling leaves

By Julia Rawlinson

Change is scary, especially for a baby fox named Fletcher who has never experienced the changing of the seasons. In Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson, the little fox notices the world has changed colors, and as the leaves start to fall from the tree, he worries. Though he tries with all of his might to save the leaves, the wind and animals steal them away. But as the last leaf falls, Fletcher discovers change isn’t so scary after all. In fact, there’s beauty in every season.


The leaf thief

By Alice Hemming

Squirrel is enjoying his beautiful red, gold, and orange leaves. That is, until he notices one is MISSING! Now, squirrel is on a mission to find the leaf thief (with help from bird) in this fall book fantastically written by Alice Hemming. Full of voice, fun, and a great way to celebrate the changing season of fall.


Fall Mixed up by Bob Raczka

Fall Books for Preschoolers

Our last preschool book about fall was Fall Mixed Up by Robert Raczka. We saved this one for last because it is a silly book about how the pumpkins turn red and the apples turn orange in the fall, and everything is mixed up. I love how this is a fun way for the kiddos to share all that they have learned about the wonderful season of fall.
