6 Picture Books Perfect for Fall

Pin It Now!

Being surrounded by piles of picture books and reading them to my kids when they were little was one of my absolute FAVORITE things to do! It was especially fun to pull out books according to specific seasons or holidays. Below are 6 books we owned and would read during the fall season and probably even read throughout the year, too. ;)

6 Picture Books Perfect For Fall

1. Pooh's Fall Harvest

This book is considered a First Reader for beginning readers, but it's great for reading aloud to younger children as well. Rabbit gathers all his friends to help with his fall harvest. Children learn what harvest season is and what it means when fruits and vegetables are ripe. After Rabbit and his friends have collected enough food for winter, Rabbit prepares a wonderful feast and invites all of his friends to a harvest celebration. At the end of the book, there are a couple of activity pages.


2. Franklin's Pumpkin

This book is also considered a First Reader, and I just love the beautiful pumpkin illustrations in this one! Franklin's friends are growing fruit to make delicious pies for the Fall Fair. Franklin's own garden looks pretty sad, but he finds a large pumpkin that he continues to shower with care in the hope of turning it into a ribbon-winning pie. When he learns that big pumpkins don't make good pies and that there isn't even a contest for the biggest pumpkin this year, he decided to stay home from the fair altogether. You'll have to get the book to find out why he ends up going to the fair and ends up winning a blue ribbon after all. Plus, you'll want to find out what happens to Franklin's giant pumpkin!


3. Pinkalicious and the Pink Pumpkin

If you have girls who love the Pinkalicious series like mine did, this book will be a perfect addition to your fall book collection. In this Lift-the-Flap book, Pinkalicious is going on a trip with her family to Mr. Pink's pumpkin patch. She thinks she's going to a place where there are pink pumpkins and is quite disappointed to find that all of the pumpkins are orange. She spends the rest of the book looking for pink pumpkins in which children can "look along" by lifting the flaps on each page. You'll have to get the book to see if Pinkalicious ever does find that perfectly pink pumpkin!


4. 100 Acorns

Apparently, most of my fall picture books are easy readers - not on purpose, though! This book is considered a First Start® Easy Reader and has just 61 different words to help with word recognition and reading interest. It's fall and Sammy the squirrel needs to stock up on acorns for winter - 100 to be exact. Children can count acorns by ones, twos, fives, and tens right along with Sammy and his friends until Sammy has the right amount. I don't know why, but my kids LOVED going through this book over and over again! Great way to practice counting skills.


5. From Seed to Pumpkin

This book and the following book are both Welcome Books; they welcome children to reading by introducing them to exciting people, places, and things in the real world. Real photos are used to take children through the process of growing bright orange pumpkins. Several words are in bold throughout the text and can be found at the end of the book with pronunciation keys and definitions.


6. From Acorn to Oak Tree

This book follows the exact same format as the previous book except the photos are of acorns and oak trees. 

So, these are the 6 pictures books perfect for fall that are in our personal picture book library. We would always go to our public library to get lots more, but it is nice to own a few. :) What are your favorite fall picture books?
