Maria Russo highlights 5 children’s books that rejoice in the changing of the seasons. It’s hard not to get lost in the vibrant scenery, and if you live in a place that’s looking more like winter than fall, perhaps that’s exactly what your family needs!
We’ve described two below, but you can read more about all 5 books here from the New York Times.
Yellow Time, by Lauren Stringer
Red, orange, brown, and yellow are colors we see this time of year, but rarely is yellow the main attraction. In “Yellow Time”, Stringer reminds us that children see the world differently, and perhaps yellow is the most vibrant color in the autumn landscape! Explore alongside the children in the book, then go outside with your own family to find yellow in your backyard. Purchase the book here.
Wonderfall, by Michael Hall
Hall shares a lovely journey through the season of fall from the view of an oak tree. The tree sees many changes throughout the season, including the activities of industrious squirrels. The book is a great conversation starter about the changes in the natural world children see around them, and includes more detailed information at the back about the transition to winter. A lovely addition to a home library! Check it out here.
