The autumn season is almost here and with it comes the falling leaves, a nip in the air and all sorts of bright colors and yummy flavors. Fall is the perfect time for learning about harvesting apples and pumpkins, gathering leaves and exploring the delicious scents and flavors of September.
The turning of summer into autumn provides a great opportunity for parents and caregivers to expose toddlers and preschool-aged children to the wonders of the season. Besides the following books all about fall and the September season, the Preschool Examiner has also provided links to fun activities for little ones that are ideal for doing at this time of the year.
