favorite fall reads

Then, sometimes quite suddenly, a fresh wind blows and the summer is over.  The days are shorter.  September is here.  Now the days are cooler and a sense of change is in the air...

- Alice and Martin Provensen (from The Year At Maple Hill Farm)

Yes, the days are certainly growing shorter and cooler around here.  That means more time to snuggle up with a good book - and blog!  What have you been reading with your little ones?  Looking forward to catching up with everyone!  :)

  • Old Bear by Kevin Henkes
  • Leaves by David Ezra Stein 
  • The Year At Maple Hill Farm by Alice and Martin Provensen
  • The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger
  • One Red Apple by Harriet Ziefert
  • Time to Sleep by Denise Fleming


  1. Oh great, I'll check to see if any of them are at the library! We love "Autumn" by Gerda Muller. It's currently open on display on our nature table. The illustration are just so beautiful.

    1. Do you have the whole seasonal set? I've never seen them in person, only online. They look really lovely.

    2. Yes we have the four of them. Finn received each one on the first day of a new season last year :) They are gorgeous. I forgot to mention the book "In the town all year round" by Rotraut Susanne Berner. Another wordless seasonal book in a style of intricate drawings teeming with details.

    3. "In Town All Year Round" looks excellent - I just checked it out on Amazon. Thanks for the suggestion! I love the idea of giving a Gerda Muller book on the first day of each season!
