Hocus Pocus, It’s Fall! is a perfect example of a book that uses those gorgeous Autumn colors for that cozy feel while you read! Kids will love the double fold-out pages and simple text as they watch animals prepare for winter among the seasonal changes. Best for ages 3 – 6 years.

There’s something about Fall that makes me think ‘owls’!
Maybe it’s the fact that we’re more likely to see & hear one on our evening walks. Owl Sees Owl is SUCH a fabulous read for a few reasons — first, the illustrations are just beautiful and second, it’s written in reverso poetry (which means the words reverse halfway through the story — like a palindrome) so it’s also a wonderful introduction to a new genre for many kids. The text is simple but delightfully descriptive too. Best for ages 2 – 7 years.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to read this new book, I’ll let you know right now — it’s a series that introduces one for each season! In The Autumn Visitors, our Bear family enjoys Autumn in New England — from the county fair to Halloween and then Thanksgiving festivities. And I love that the books in this series are mostly told via pictures with very little text (and some very funny pictures at that!) Seasonal perfection for ages 3 – 8 years!
The other books in the series include:
It’s always easier to say good-bye to one season when you’re excited for the next 🙂 Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn follows a young girl as she walks through the woods noticing the Fall changes.
The beautiful illustrations will inspire readers to see who’s making dens, looking for food and spot other changes in nature as we enter a new season. This is also one in a series – the next installment being Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter is just as beautiful! Best for ages 3 – 7 years.
