Pier and I have been snuggling up and reading lots of books about changing leaves, apple pies, and pumpkin patches. I like to keep a thrifted basket on hand in our living room to be filled with books of the season. Reading about the changing cycles of nature is my small way of helping my children recognize the beauty that surrounds us each season.

These books are really sweet and fun to read together. Pier has a soft spot for characters with trucks and animals, and I love books that teach life lessons in order to establish a strong moral code. I'm always looking for new books to add to our seasonal library...are there any autumn reads that your little ones love?
