As the days get a little chillier, there will be more time to snuggle for story time + more books that will be need to be read. We are here to help you out with that. With a new season, comes new books. Here are just a few of our favorites for fall.

Erin's Pick:

Julia, Child

Julia, Child

Author: Kyo Maclear

Illustrator: Julie Morstad

Why I chose this book:
"To put it simply: I love the food that comes with the colder weather + changing leaves. Spiced cider, freshly baked pies, roasted pumpkin seeds...I love it all. Fall is also a time that invites us indoors to cook + enjoy more meals with family + friends. One of my favorite books is Julia, Child by Kyo Maclear. It's a tale about the famous chef Julia Child as a child herself. Along with her pal Simca, the book follows the pair as they cook + discover the importance of having fun, eating, and the simple fact that you can never use "too much butter". Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got some cooking to do!"

Katy's Pick:

Vunce Upon A Time

Vunce Upon A Time

Author: J. Otto Seibold + Siobhan Vivian

Illustrator: J. Otto Seibold

Why I chose this book:

"I have two girls who love holidays. One of our favorite ways to get into the spirit is through storybooks. Christmas is full of them. This is one of the best for Halloween. The illustrations + story are funny for both kids + adults. Dagmar is a young vampire who is a vegetarian. He's a bit timid, not at all scary. He loves candy more than anything + sets out into the world of humans to get his hands on some Halloween treats. It sort of flips the holiday on its head. A fun read that could ease reluctant kids into trick-or-treating or that will make old pros chuckle."

Krista's Pick:

Nature ArtNature Art

Nature Art

Author: Jenny Bowers

Why I chose this book:

"It is a wonderful book to inspire little ones to get outside , observe, collect + display treasures found in nature. This is a favorite time of year for us to go hiking in the woods + on the beach. We find treasures like shells, seed pods, nuts, + brightly colored leaves. I like this book because it encourages us to be inquisitive about what we find + thoughtful of how we save + show our fall treasures off! This is a great book for any little fall nature lovers out there."

Ashley's Pick:

When Green Becomes Tomato

When Green Becomes Tomatoes: Poems for All Seasons

Author: Julie Fogliano

Illustrator: Julie Morstad

Why I chose this book:

"This book is not only inspiring for fall, but for every season. It is full of poems about the seasons + things that happen during each one. It is beautifully written + illustrated + also educational. The poems are titled by date which gives you a moment in time to think about when reading each one. Not to mention, it is fun to read the poem on the exact day it was written about."
