With summer winding down as quickly as it started, we’re all giving our homes a little fall refresh.

One great way to do that is to switch up the books on your kids’ shelves. Doing so instantly adds a little touch of whatever season you’re in (children’s books are so pretty!), and books also help to promote understanding of how life changes during different times of the year.

As the leaves start to change and the weather gets cooler, your little ones might be reaching for their shelves a bit more. Creating family time centered around reading together is not only a special way to bond, but it also seems like a quintessential fall activity, doesn’t it?

Here are some of our fall favorites (we’ve noted which ones are available in board book for your tiniest readers)—let us know if we’ve missed any of yours!
