Favorite Fall Reads

The other day I went through all of our books and found some fall favs.  What you have to realize is that while we’ve received some books as gifts, several of these made the cut when I quit teaching and had a huge garage sale, where I sold about 90% of my over 3,000 books.  These definitely fall in the “Favorites” category, in other words!  Here are links to the ones that you can purchase on Amazon (a few are from Dollar Tree or Target dollar section).  I appreciate you using my affiliate links to add these books to your library!  Note: I have also linked some books not pictured… just because we don’t own them doesn’t mean they aren’t fabulous books that I’d love to add to our library!


General fall topic books shown in the picture:

Apples by Ken Robbins – a fabulous non-fiction look at the fruit
Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert – a fun introduction to new as well as familiar foods – fabulous for a harvest lesson
