Fall is my favorite. Crisp air. Crunchy leaves underfoot. Beautiful colors painting the trees. Warm jackets. Apple cider. I love it all! A good book makes it even better. Here are 5 fall themed books to read with your kids.
5 Fall Themed Books to Read With Your Kids
1. The Pumpkin Patch Parable.
I love the Parable books by Liz Curtis Higgs. This charming story shows children of all ages how a loving farmer can turn a simple pumpkin into a beautiful sight. In the same way, God’s transforming love can fill each of our hearts with joy and light. Liz Curtis Higgs created this parable as a way to share the Good News with her own precious children each harvest season. Now we get to share her story with our children. Liz is an amazing storyteller.
2. A Pumpkin Prayer.
Colorful pumpkins, crunching leaves, crisp breezes—celebrate the abundance of the harvest season through charming illustrations and sweet rhymes that are perfect for young hearts. My children love the colors and the little mice. Perfect to read to babies until around age 2.
3. Good Night, Little Pumpkin.
Sleepy little Milo, in his oversized pumpkin costume, is making the rounds at the harvest party with his friends. It’s time to go home, but he wants to enjoy every game at the fall fair before the night is over! Crunching leaves, crisp breezes, mountains of sweets—celebrate the abundance of the harvest season through this bedtime book for children. Charming illustrations and a sweet story are perfect for young hearts.
4. P is for Pumpkin.
P is for Pumpkin celebrates the wonders of the fall season. With help from the alphabet, preschoolers journey through God’s harvest blessings—in the process discovering just how much there is to be thankful for! The fun is infectious as they learn to appreciate autumn for its beauty and bounty and more.
5. The Berenstain Bears Give Thanks.
We love the Living Lights Berenstain Bear series. It helps children learn how God wants them to live every day, while enjoying the classic characters I read when I was their age. In Give Thanks, the Berenstain cubs act out the first Thanksgiving—complete with costumes, props and a full Thanksgiving feast. The Berenstain Bears Give Thanks teaches how God provided for the pilgrims and reminds children of God’s many blessings.
