[object Object]

Summer is coming to an end and fall is just around the corner. This is the perfect season to grab a cup of pumpkin spice latte, cuddle up with the kids and fall into some amazing autumn reading. Here are five amazing fall picture books recommendations that I hope you can enjoy with your kids this season.

1. YELLOW TIME by Lauren Stringer

YELLOW TIME is one of the best picture books of 2016 according to School Library Journal. With gorgeous watercolour and acrylic illustrations and spare but lyrical text, this book is a joyful celebration of autumn.

2. THE SCARECROW’S by Jane Yolen, Illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline

This poetic picture book is full of magic and emotion. The stunning illustrations are a perfect blend of whimsy and solemnity that match the story’s mood. Another timeless tale from Jane Yolen.

3. SOPHIE’S SQUASH by Pat Zietlow Miller, illustrated by Anne Wilsdorf

Sophie’s best friend is a squash named Bernice. But as fall heads toward winter, Bernice begins to change. How will Sophie help her flagging friend? This adorable story is the perfect mix of humour and heart with equally delightful illustrations.

4. WATER IS WATER by Miranda Paul, illustrated by Jason Chin

This book is fabulous on so many levels. The short poetic text is a joy to read aloud and engaging to even very young children. The gorgeous watercolour and illustrations draw readers in and lead them on a detailed journey through the seasons. Clear, informative back-matter tells readers about the many stages of the water cycle.

5. A LEAF CAN BE by Laura Purdie Salas, illustrated by Violeta Dabija

This is an engaging, lyrical exploration of leaves through the seasons accompanied by magical illustrations that look almost as though they were painted with light. An all-around beautiful book.
