Fifteen Fun Fall Read Alouds

I have to admit that fall is not my favorite season. It’s the time of year when dark comes earlier and earlier and it begins to get colder and colder. And, in my neck of the woods, it’s often rainy and wet. But, despite my personal wishes, fall comes. Every year. So, instead of complaining and wishing it away, I have learned to pick out the good things about fall- crunchy leaves, pumpkin recipes, soup, warm hoodies, smoky fire smells, pretty colors. And, when the season rolls around, I focus on those.

With that in mind, I’m sharing some fun fall books that you can read aloud to celebrate the season and focus on the good things in it.
