Yes, I realize that story-telling is the preferred, but due to my memory, I read the books instead. ;) Any suggestions for Autumn?
We just read 'Possum's Harvest Moon,' which is about a gathering of animals at the end of Autumn, and it occured to me I'd love to find some other seasonally-appropriate books to read.
Thanks! We do have many of the books you have mentioned. I will pull some out. I was thinking specifically Autumn-based, but you have made some good points for the others.
Dd is an older kindergarter at 6. Hopefully I can share some of the more enchanting things about the season with her. She is always trying to be older than she is, so I'm not yet ready to read the 7 year Wonder book to her. ;)
My 6 year old's favorite fall book these days is Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert. It was been inspiring some pretty great artwork and creative play. He also likes Pumpkin Moonshine by Tasha Tudor, and one of our all time favorites that could be multi season but we generally read it in the fall is Oxcart Man by Donald Hall, with Barbara Cooney's lovely folk art illustrations.
homemaker mama to and due in March
I just stumbled upon a good 'end of summer' book last night - Time of Wonder by Robert McClosky. It's a bit long and wordy...perhaps better for 1st grade read-a-loud depending upon your child. We did it in two nights. And for those who like Blueberries for Sal and One Morning in Maine, Dd seemed to be under the impression the children pictured in the book were the little girls from those books more grown up and she liked that.
We also did St. George and the Dragon and I'm going to have to say it was a bit gorier than I had anticipated for this age.
