I like to display seasonal children’s books in my den and throughout my house. I find that it makes picking up a book and reading with my children easier and more natural. So today I’ve pulled together my favorite classic children’s picture books about fall.

If you go to go a chain bookstore you’ll notice the center seasonal table is often filled with new books, including many, what I call, “filler” books. Nothing particularly wrong with these but I don’t want my children to miss some of the sweet classic books, including the really good stories that have stood the test of a bit of time. Many of these fall books have beautiful illustrations about this glorious season that you can discuss and enjoy with your little ones.

Many of these I’ve shared before but the Ten Red Apples book is a new favorite with our two year old. It was included in our Twig and Olive Box but I plan to pull it out every fall.
