Autumn Books for Preschoolers and School Children
This is a short list of autumn themed books for preschoolers as well as school age children. I have used a number of these in the past when teaching year 1 (first grade) as well as teaching preschool / early years foundation stage. I’ve included Amazon links (affiliate) in case you would like to purchase any of these books. It will also allow you to see further information and reviews from other readers which I always like to look at before buying!
Reading books is an excellent way to develop children’s communication and language skills. They introduce children to new vocabulary and provide opportunities to discuss things they have experienced in their everyday lives. In this case, they can discuss what they have noticed or found in the autumn!
