The summer days are packed with activities. When the cooler fall days arrive we tend to slow down. It’s time to fill our time with slower fall activities…like reading a good book. We love sharing a good book list and this one is packed with our fave fall books for kids.
Check out all of our amazing book recommendations on our EPIC Top Books for Kids page.

Pages filled with colourful images of trees and children wearing sweaters and scarves. Adventures that involve pumpkin patches and apple trees and jumping in piles of leaves. We’ve gathered together a few of our favourite fall books for kids.
I store our seasonal books in a bin. At the end of each season, I pile up the books and pack them away until the season arrives again. When I bring out the bin of fall books, it’s like the kids are visiting with old friends. This is a great way to extend the life of books. We have a bin for Christmas books, summer books, spring books and fall books.
