15 Fantastic Fall Books we Love

Our Fall book collection is by far my favorite. I have been collecting them for over 5 years and our collection has grown quite large. Apparently I’m not the only one who loves a good fall themed book, because there are a ton of them out there. And, in case you were wondering Halloween and Thanksgiving are separate categories when it comes to our holiday books. Today I’m sharing our top picks for Fall reads in case you are building a personal library, or want to go put a few on hold at the library. I love to read Fall inspired books to kick off the season, but these picks are perfect clear up to the start of Winter.

  1. Too Many Pumpkins is new to us this year, but it was an instant favorite about an old lady who hates pumpkins.
  2. The Squirrels who Squabbled is a fun story of two squirrels who are after the same pine cone, and the chaos that ensues.
  3. Hedgehugs: Autumn Hide and Seek. A fun interactive book, my younger boys enjoy seeking out the characters.
  4. Pumpkin Town is my 5 year old’s top pick. It’s a sun story about a group of brothers that make the mistake of tossing pumpkin seeds into the wind. The illustrations are unique and whimsy.
  5. Let It Fall is the fall edition of Mary seasonal set. It has sweet illustrations and simple text that is reminiscent of fun fall activities.
  6. Heartwood Hotel is also part of a 4 part seasonal set. This chapter book has a few illustrations and follows the story of woodland animals that run a hotel in a tree.
  7. Duck and Goose find a Pumpkin. This sweet board book is a fun starter fall book that follows duck and goose on their search for a pumpkin.
  8. I Want that Nut is my 8 year old’s top pick. It’s the funny story of two friends that both want an acorn and go to silly lengths to have it to themselves.
  9. Porcupine’s Pie is a sweet story of friendship and generosity as the forest friends prepare for their fall feast.
  10. A Friend Like You tells the story of how two friends that navigate their differences.
  11. Little Acorn tells the life cycle of an acorn tree through the perspective of the little acorn, with adorable illustrations.
  12. Pick a Pumpkin is a favorite for it’s fun telling of the traditional trip to the pumpkin patch.
  13. Sophie’s Squash is a humorous book about a spirited little girl named Sophie that befriends a squash.
  14. Clifford’s First Autumn is my 3 year old’s favorite book this year because he is really into Clifford, and loves that it is about when Clifford is a tiny puppy. (There are used copies of this book that are reasonably priced)
  15. Hello Fall is a sweet story about a young girl and her Grandfather and all the things they do to celebrate fall.
