It’s that small window between Halloween and Christmas when everything is all about Fall. I live in Florida so I technically don’t get to experience the iconic fall that most of the country gets, so I like to live vicariously through books. I flip through pages of bright orange leaves and pretty pumpkins with my kids. It makes me so happy. So today I am going to share my favorite fall books for kids with all of you.
