We found this treasure several years ago, and it has been a favorite ever since. The children want to read it over and over again! Rebecca Estelle absolutely hates pumpkins. What is she going to do when she finds them growing all over her yard?

This is a fun book to read with your young ones  – Fall is here, and the little squirrel is too busy preparing for winter to play with the other animals. The repetitive lines make it fun for the children to join in with you!

How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, by Marjorie Priceman

This has become another top favorite! Making an apple pie is easy… if the market is open. What do you do when the market is closed? You travel around the world! This is wonderfully fun to read. Read the story, then make an apple pie… see if everyone can remember where each ingredient came from.

This story is beautifully illustrated to depict different activities that occur in late fall as the earth and it’s creatures prepare for winter.
