Books aren't usually at the top of the list for most kids. Out of my 5 kiddos only 1 consistently asks for a new book every week and the youngest requests a bedtime story nightly. Even though books may not be at the top of the wish list for most children it brings an opportunity to bond with younger children, increase elementary age kids vocabulary and introduce new experiences to tweens & teens. Here are some statistics as to why you should implement reading into your household, here.
I love to read and cuddle with my youngest two at night. Here's our favorite Autumn books:
This is a nonfiction picture book that features kid-friendly text and illustrations to make learning fun!
Look at all the brightly colored trees! Fall weather causes leaves to change colors. Follow a leaf as it grows, changes color, and falls to the ground. Let's grab a rake! What happens in fall?
This spooky twist on the wildly popular "There Was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly" is perfect for fun Halloween reading!
What won't this old lady swallow? This time around, a bat, an owl, a cat, a ghost, a goblin, some bones, and a wizard are all on the menu! This Halloween-themed twist on the classic "little old lady" books will delight and entertain all brave readers who dare to read it!
We have many books from this series because the boys love this old lady and her shenanigans so much!
A hilarious, kid-friendly take on Thanksgiving — full of family, food, and lots of fun!
It’s another Thanksgiving at Grandma’s. Gavin expects a long day of boredom and being pestered by distantly related toddlers, but his cousin Rhonda has a different idea: make a break for it — out of the kids’ room to the swing set in the backyard! Gavin isn’t so sure, especially when they encounter vicious guard dogs (in homemade sweaters), a hallway full of overly affectionate aunts, and worse yet, the great wall of butts! Will they manage to avoid the obstacles and find some fun before turkey time? Or will they be captured before they’ve had a taste of freedom?
I am a big fan of the I Can Read book series when my children are just learning to read. In this book Little Critter® and his family on their exciting road trip to the Fall Festival! From apple picking to hayrides, discover how fun the harvest season can be.
