Picture Books Fall Apple Farmer Annie book cover

Apple Farmer Annie
by Monica Wellington

Apple Farmer Annie loves growing apples and she loves baking her apples into all kinds of delicious things to eat. But more than anything, Annie loves sharing her apples and baked goods at the farmer’s market. And Annie would like to share her yummy treats with you, too—just follow the recipes in the back of the book!

Picture Books Fall Bear Has a Story to Tell book cover

Bear Has a Story to Tell
by Philip C. Stead

Children’s writing duo Philip and Erin Stead (A Sick Day for Amos McGee) have a story to tell about a sleepy bear who has his own story to tell. But Bear’s friends are all too busy getting ready for winter to listen to Bear. Maybe in the spring they will be rested and ready to hear it—that is, if Bear can still remember the story!

Picture Books Fall Count Down to Fall book cover

Count Down to Fall
by Fran Hawk

Count Down to Fall offers a richly illustrated study in counting and the beauty of autumn. Two-page spreads showcase the colors and textures of fall, with raccoons, opossums, squirrels, and birds frolicking alongside oak leaves, pinecones, acorns, and birch bark. It’s more than a picture book…it’s an autumn masterpiece!

Picture Books Fall Fletcher and the Falling Leaves book cover

Fletcher and the Falling Leaves
by Julia Rawlinson

Fletcher’s favorite tree is starting to look brown and dry, and Fletcher doesn’t understand why. But when the wind starts to blow and the tree’s leaves begin to fall, the young fox really begins to worry. What’s happening to his tree? Fletcher’s mom tries to reassure him, but it takes a big surprise to make Fletcher feel better.

Picture Books Fall Hardscrabble Harvest book cover

Hardscrabble Harvest
by Dahlov Ipcar

With sweet watercolor illustrations, lilting rhyme, and a touch of humor, Dahlov Ipcar follows a farmer through the seasons, from planting in the spring to a bountiful autumn feast. It may sound simple, but you’ll soon discover that if the farmer wants to enjoy his harvest, he’s got his work cut out for him.

Picture Books Fall A House in the Woods book cover

A House in the Woods
by Inga Moore

You might think that two pigs would find it difficult to be friends with a bear and a moose, but if you read A House in the Woods you’ll see that anything’s possible! Set in an autumn forest, this enchanting picture book is a delightful primer on friendship, generosity, kindness, hard work–and sharing peanut butter sandwiches with friends.

Picture Books Fall Leaf Jumpers book cover

Leaf Jumpers
by Carol Gerber

There are few activities that children enjoy more than jumping in a freshly raked pile of fallen leaves. But who would have thought that a pile of leaves could also be a fun-filled classroom? In Leaf Jumpers, kids learn shapes and colors and how to identify leaves from a variety of trees. It’s autumn fun at its most colorful!

Picture Books Fall Leaf Man book cover

Leaf Man
by Lois Ehlert

Children’s author Lois Ehlert said, “When I see a beautiful leaf, I have to pick it up. I can’t help myself.” If you’re anything like Lois, you’re going to love this whimsical picture book. Follow Leaf Man wherever the wind blows him, but keep your eyes open–there are LOTS of leaf creatures to find in this colorful autumn treasure!

Picture Books Fall Possum's Harvest Moon

Possum’s Harvest Moon
by Anne Hunter

It’s almost time for Possum’s long winter sleep, but tonight the harvest moon is shining bigger and brighter than ever. It’s the perfect night for one last dance party before winter! But the mice, the crickets, and even the fireflies are too busy (or too sleepy) to come to Possum’s Harvest Soirée. Or are they?

Picture Books Fall The Pumpkin Runner book cover

The Pumpkin Runner
by Marsha Diane Arnold

When Joshua Summerhayes enters a 900-kilometer run, no one expects him to win. After all, with his overalls and big orange boots, the old sheep rancher doesn’t look much like a runner. But Joshua has been running for over 50 years, fueled by pumpkins and with his old Yellow Dog by his side. Do you think Joshua can win the race?

Picture Books Fall Tap the Magic Tree book cover

Tap the Magic Tree
by Christie Matheson

If you could, would you coax a bare brown tree to burst back to life again? In Tap the Magic Tree, you will turn words into motion, enticing the tree along on its journey from winter to spring and summer, through autumn and another winter, and back to spring again. It’s a colorful walk through the seasons that you make happen!

Picture Books Fall We're Going on a Leaf Hunt book cover

We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt
by Steve Metzger

Steve Metzger’s We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt might remind you of another well-known children’s “hunting” book. In this delightfully singsongy read-aloud, readers go over a tall mountain, through a dark forest, around a swooshing waterfall, and across a cold lake to find lots of colorful leaves. It’s a wonderful day!

I love themed book suggestions! Keep them coming!

Kathrine Miller

says:

Thank you so much for this list! Taking it with me to the library this week.

Marcie Tenk

says:

Fletcher and the Falling Leaves is one of our fall favourites!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Marcie,
Fletcher and the Falling Leaves is so beautifully illustrated. We love it too!

Lyndsey Allender

says:

We are voracious readers. Just when I thought we’d read every “fall” book out there, here was your list! Thank you!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Lyndsey,
We are happy to give you some ideas for new books to read! Enjoy.

Alicia

says:

This is just what I’ve been looking for. We love reading as a family but we are ready for some new material. Okay, it might just be me who needs something new since toddlers are notorious for wanting to read the same book a dozen times a day. :)

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Alicia,
I remember those days! My compromise was they choose a book, then I choose a book. That way at least every other book was not the same one or two I had already read a hundred times.

Allison

says:

Thank you for these suggestions! It looks like a great selection-I’m hoping to get to the library soon!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Allison,
I hope you find at least one new book to fall in love with!

Alexandra

says:

Thank you for wonderful book recommendations. We know and love many of these, but some are new to us, we will have to look them up.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Alexandra,
We hope this list helps you to find some new books to love!

Andrea

says:

Thanks for the suggestions!

Jessica

says:

Thank you!! What beautiful books!

Lisa D.

says:

What a great list of Fall titles! Lots of suggestions means everyone is sure to find something that appeals to them. Oxcart Man is one of my favorites and is great for teaching about life in the past.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Lisa,
Thank you for letting us know that Oxcart Man is one of your favorites.

Amanda

says:

Thank you! We already have several “leaf man” art works hanging up!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Amanda,
A couple moms have mentioned using this book list along with their leaf art projects or leaf unit studies. Sounds like there could be a lot of fun there!

Jen

says:

We have so many of these — I can’t wait to bring them out again!

Anna

says:

Picture books are great for developing pre-reading skills! I just wish I had room in my home for more of them!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

I know what you mean, Anna! There is always the library, though.

Maria P.

says:

Thank you for the great ideas!

Paige

says:

Thanks so much for this list of books! It’s still hot in Tampa, but we will add these to our morning basket !

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Paige,
Fall and cooler will come, sooner or later. Maybe these titles can help get you in a fall mood despite the weather!

Iris

says:

The Scarecrow’s Hat is a fun story and great for retellin practice. We read the story then act it out with props. Chicken (child with large craft feathers in pocket) barters with other animals to finally get what she wants–the scarecrow’s hat.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Iris,
I love your idea to act out The Scarecrow’s Hat! That would be so fun, and really change the way children think about the book too. Thank you for sharing this.

Carolyn

says:

There’s something special about curling up on a fall day with a great book and a child on your lap. Thanks for all your great suggestions!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

We agree, Carolyn. And hot cocoa too!

Cheryl

says:

Tara

says:

A great selection of fall books would be great for my little ones.

Susan

says:

Do you typically find these books at the library or do you purchase them?

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Susan,
Most libraries will have many of these titles. While we think purchasing books is great, we encourage families to make full use of their libraries as well. I like to use our library system as much as I can, only purchasing books we cannot get through the library and books that we fall in love with and want to have at home with us all the time.

Melody

says:

What an exciting list for fall! Most of these titles are new to me, and I look forward to scouring our library shelves!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

I always felt books about seasons, holidays, and events have helped us to enjoy the season, holiday, or event even more. It seems to bring to our attention all the lovely things.

Brooke Taufaasau

says:

Great list of books!

Claire

says:

I love book lists! Going to the library and pulling books off the shelves at random has not always been successful for our family.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Claire,
I’ve had similar experiences, spending hours at the library to find a few gems. Having a list of preselected titles makes the trip much more successful.

Cathy

says:

Thank you for the great list of books! We are excited to read through these

Fletcher and the Falling Leaves is our favorite fall book! I have read it every fall since my oldest was little…she is 15 now and our youngest is 4. Even the big kids still love it!

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Gina,
One surprising thing I have found with reading aloud to my children is how it brings shared memories even for children that are a decade apart in age. All of my children can reminisce together over hundreds of books, even though I read them aloud to the various children years apart. At least in that way, books are magic!

Teri Rae Hannan

says:

We love reading lists! This one looks wonderful. I can’t wait to take it to the library!

Tauni

says:

Thanks for this list! We also love one called “Orange Pear Apple Bear”–it’s a cute read, but I especially love that my little early-speakers could “read” the book with me! Then we created magnets of each, and I made a simple booklet of “apple, bear, pear, orange” for them to practice patterns and following the order.

Robin E.

What a clever way to get the most out of a book, Tauni. It sounds like a fun way to play and learn!

Valentine

We have already started reading about fall…it feels like we have to do a lot of reading about it as we don’t get a strong fall here in coastal California! Thanks for the great recommendations.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Valentine,
I know what you mean! We live deep in the desert of Arizona, and we really get no fall at all. We just get a cooling and everything stays perfectly green. But we can experience fall and winter snow, mountain peaks and coastal plains, and so much more through books!

Erin

Robin E.

Kim,
You are welcome. We hope you enjoy the new season!

I’ve got to say that Too Many Pumpkins is probably our family’s favorite fall picture book, too. The story is a great one of making something good out of a “bad” circumstance and the artwork is beautiful – vivid, inviting paintings.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Kim,
I love children’s books that have striking, beautiful artwork. Thank you for this recommendation.
