10 Picture Books for Children about the Fall Season
Clifford’s First Autumn (Age 2-3):
We loved all Clifford books. Don’t you? In this one, kids will follow Clifford and find out what it is like in autumn through the red dog’s eyes – have fun jumping in the leaves, chasing the footfall, and picking out the first pumpkin.
A Is for Autumn (Age 3 – 6):
It is a nature themed alphabet book with beautiful pictures. With carefully chosen seasonal changes ordered alphabetically, kids learn about seasonal change and letters all at the same time. The sentences in the book are pretty long, so young kids will need help. Still it is a great read for preschool and early readers.

Another fun Little Critter book by Mercer Mayer. With typical Little Critter humors, kids will enjoy following the Critter family driving out to the country for a Fall Festival. They will watch the leaves that are changing colors, eat apples, drink apple cider, go on a tractor hay ride, pick out pumpkins, and play horseshoes… It is a wonderful read for the season. After reading the book, you can try do some activities little critter did.
The Busy Little Squirrel (Age 1 – 4):
It is a delightful book teaching children about hibernation. Kids will be curious to find out why can’t the squirrel nibble with the mice, hop with the frogs, or run with the dogs. This is a great book helping kids learn different animals too.

This is a book in the Mouse’s First series. The bright pictures will invite kids in a fun read with the mouse. Kids can follow Mouse and Minka to discover the changes of the season and fun things you can do: run through the leaves, look at their shapes, pile them up, and play hide-and-seek.
Apples and Pumpkins (Age 4 – 8):
