The changing of seasons is a great opportunity to get kids excited about new and different kinds of books. Summer is slowly fading away as autumn is fast approaching. We have compiled 30 fantastic fall favorites to help get your kids into the fall spirit.

These books will help them experience the scent, sight, touch, sound, and taste of the beauty of autumn through books the scent of pumpkin spice and apple pies; the sight of brightly colored leaves; the touch of cool, crisp autumn breeze; the sounds and whispers of migrating geese; the taste of mouthwatering candy corns and other fall treats; and much more. Hope your young readers will enjoy reading these fall books as much as ours have.

“I wish every day could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.” ~R. J. Palacio (Wonder)

It is no wonder that we are choosing Wonder by R. J. Palacio (Recommended for ages 9-12) as our tween/teens’ book pick for October, in honor of National Bullying Prevention Month.

“August Pullman was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a mainstream school. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s extraordinary face.” Or can they?
