Fall Books for Kiddos

I am always trying to rotate our books.  Dutch is a big reader, so we go through a lot of books.  But just like I get tired of reading the same books over and over again, he gets tired of hearing the same books.  From an educational perspective, I know that when he is starting to recite the words with me, or even say them before I can read them, that he has memorized the book, and it's time to move on and incorporate some new material.  As we go through and learn about the different seasons, it's a great time to switch out some of our books.  Our favorite fall books right now are about football, the seasons, Halloween, & Thanksgiving, and here are our favorite fall books right now:

I just picked up a Snoopy Christmas book at TJ Maxx yesterday for our little girl. I can't wait to read it to her THIS YEAR!!! AH! You know I love that Steelers book! And I was a big fan of the Berenstain Bears growing up, even if I know it used to be Berenstein and the world is just messing with me as an adult lol. My favorite book when I was little was Mr Pine's Purple House. My sister stole my copy so I am having to buy a new one, but I have such fond memories of my grandma reading me that book and it teaches a good lesson about being you! I will be adding some of these to my list to grab, so thank you!
