Fall Books - w/Allyse Holcomb

Fall and children's books are two of my favorite things. Putting the two together is even better. Fall is a time I find myself longing to be outside and as a teacher and mother I see this in the children I spend my days with as well. Books centered on the seasonal change and nature stir up so much inspiration to explore and make meaningful connections within learning. I am so excited to share some of the books that mean so much to me and my family. Some are new to us this year and some are favorites from even my childhood.

Remember, even if you can't purchase the books or visit your local library, you can listen to many many of the books by searching the internet. One of our favorite things to do is to find videos of the authors of books reading their texts aloud. Another great option is to virtually check out audiobooks via your local library. I hope these books bring joy and inspiration to you and your family all season long. Make sure to come say hi to me over on instagram, @allyseholcomb.
