Fall Books

Happy Wednesday! With every changing season, I always try to add a few new books to our collection. I have to admit that fall / Halloween books are my favorite to pick out. The kiddos always look forward to seeing new books on their bookshelves. It’s so much fun to read to Jordan and Jasmine and talk about the similarities from the books to what is happening in our current weather and environment. I love when we are driving around from either picking up Jonathan from school or heading to the grocery store and a discussion starts about the leaves changing colors and how its getting cooler in the mornings because the season has changed.

The other night we were at Jonathan’s soccer practice and Jordan was looking around a tree and he ran over to me with such urgency that I thought he was hurt, but come to find out he showed me all the acorns he found and he was able to recognize them from our book, Because of an Acorn. He filled his pockets with them and thought it was the coolest thing that he found an acorn. The next day we examined them and he colored some pictures and practiced his writing.

I just finished reading You’ve Been Volunteered which was so cute! It is the follow up to Class Mom. It was a light, relatable and funny read. I have a few books that are on my fall reading list which include In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware. I have read a few of her other books and enjoy reading thrillers in the fall. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens is another book that has caught my eye. I love to curl up after the kiddos have gone to sleep, make some tea, and escape into a good read before bed. What is on your fall reading list this year?
