Reading Fall picture books to kids is a great way to explore the changing season and warmth the season brings. From pumpkins to falling leaves, there are so many things to explore about the season. We pair all of these picture books with our many fall themed activities for our homeschool day. My son is currently Kindergarten age and these books have become a beautiful way to connect with him during the cozy season.
Below is a list of our favorite fall picture books. You can browse through this list and review my comments for each book. If you are a looking for a quick list to click through, you can visit my Amazon Fall Picture Book Favorites list here! There are so many great books to choose from this fall!

Favorite Fall Picture Books for Kindergarten
This picture book is great book for pairing pumpkins with science. We use this with the pumpkin investigation sheet I have free to download here. We look at a pumpkin, guess how many seeds will be inside and open it up to explore. It becomes a fun, fall direction.
This book was one of our very first picture books for learning about fall pumpkins. I love that it shows how plants grow in the ground and it covers the life cycle of a pumpkin. This book would pair great with my Life Cycle of a Pumpkin printable in my Etsy shop as well!
Fall Nature Themed Books
Fletcher and the Falling Leaves
This is a beautifully illustrated book for teaching children about the change of seasons. The falling of leaves has Fletcher the fox perplexed. I love reading this book each year with my son for fall!
The beauty of the moon in fall is presented in this book. The harvest moon is typically in September, but every 3 years it falls in October. You will want to do yourself a favor and google when the harvest moon is. The harvest moon for 2022 is September 10th and it was breath taking. The beauty God has put in to the moon and changing of seasons is breathtaking.
The connect to God’s creation and nature is explored in a conversational way in Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn. I love the vibrant illustrations and rhythm of this book.
