Autumn Resources

Some of my kind readers have been asking for a book list so I thought it was time to publish it. I will start with my fall book list and then do one for the Underground Railroad/Civil War.

Our favorite autumn books:
  • Pumpkin Jack by Will Hubbel- there is a unit at Homeschool Share on this one which is a lot of fun!
  • Too Many Pumpkins by Linda White
  • How to Make and Apple Pie and See the World by Marjorie Priceman- which is featured in a Reading Rainbow episode available on Netflix and at the library
  • Pumpkin, Pumpkin by Jeanne Titherington
  • It's Pumpkin Time by Zoe Hall
  • How Do Apples Grow by Betsy Maestro
  • From Seed to Pumpkin by Wendy Pfeffer
  • The Pumpkin book by Gail Gibbons
  • Poppleton in Fall by Cynthia Rylant
  • Why Do Leaves Change Color? by Betsy Maestro
  • Fresh Fall Leaves by Betsy Franco
  • The Wild Leaf Ride by Judith Stamper
  • Clifford's First Autumn by Norman Bridwell
  • Halloween Mazes
We read these a lot especially with the younger ones. The older ones enjoy our fall crafting and preparations. We've been to the cider mill, today we are going to the pumpkin patch and we'll be making applesauce next weekend- a day long affair at our house!

Enjoy the season!

My girls LOVE Pumpkin Jack. We checked out (and kept out) the one from the library so much last year, that this year we bought our own copy. Thanks for this list! I'm going to add these title to my Autumn seasonal folder so I can remember them. :)
