Whether your children are back at school, heading off to University or in my case not old enough to attend either yet, there’s one thing that every child can benefit from and that is a new set of books.
We recently swapped out the books on our daughters’ bookcase and these are their ones for fall.
- Guess How Much I Love You in the Autumn by Sam McBratney
- Brambly Hedge: Autumn Story by Jill Barklem
- What Small Rabbit Heard by Sheryl webster and TimWarnes
- A Bit Lost by Chris Haughton
- The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson
- Lazy Ozzie by Michael Coleman
- Tales From Acorn Wood by Julia Donaldson
In swapping around or even inviting new books in you can guarantee that it will be refreshing and stimulating. They can educate your youngster about the season and act as a base in which to actively teach them about the world around them.
One such book that could provide the basis for an autumnal adventure is Guess How Much I Love You in the Autumn. A variant on the ever so popular Guess How Much I Love You book this book could be used to set the scene for exploring leaves. With time and patience this could lead you to talking about the different colours of the leaves and the shapes they come in. Perhaps you could collect some for creating rubbings or an Autumnal wreath. The possibilities for creative play are endless.
