It’s fall y’all!

Fall has always been my favorite season. The crisp, cool air, cozy sweaters, warm boots, scarves, pumpkin spice lattes, apple crisp, Halloween and beautiful falling leaves. What’s not to love?

To me, fall means cuddling up in front of the fireplace with a good book. If you don’t already know, I’m a huge book lover and luckily, so are my kids. Every so often, we like to pick out new books to go along with the current season or holiday. These are our top 10 favourite books about autumn.

Fall Ball


“Bobby and his friends wait all day for school to end and for their chance to play outdoors in the fall weather. Flying leaves, swirling colors, and crisp air make the perfect setting for a game of football with Sparky the dog. The kids are surprised by how quickly it gets dark and even more surprised when it begins to snow. But there’s no need to worry―the chilly nights ahead will mean watching football on the couch with family, tucked under a cozy blanket.” –

This book is one of our favorites. The pictures are beautiful and the story is so cute. If you like this one, be sure to check out other books by this author. We love Chloe and Henry In Love.

How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World


“An apple pie is easy to make…if the market is open. But if the market is closed, the world becomes your grocery store. This deliciously silly recipe for apple pie takes readers around the globe to gather ingredients. First, hop a steamboat to Italy for the finest semolina wheat. Then hitch a ride to England and hijack a cow for the freshest possible milk. And, oh yes! Don’t forget to go apple picking in Vermont! A simple recipe for apple pie is included.” –

While this book isn’t a true ‘autumn book’, apple pie and fall often go hand in hand. What’s better than a warm slice of homemade apple pie on a crisp fall day? It’s even better if you picked those apples yourself at an apple orchard!

This book is a fun take on the classic story There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly. With lines like “There was an old lady who swallowed some leaves. I don’t know why she swallowed those leaves. Perhaps she’ll sneeze.”, your kids will be wanting to read it again and again.

“What if animals and plants knew math, just like you? Would leaves fall in patterns? Would whales enter a race? In Counting on Fall, nature comes to life to help children grasp concepts of number sense and numeration.” –
