10 Picture Books to Welcome Autumn
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, not Christmas. Autumn is just around the corner! One of our favourite things on a blustery Autumn day is to snuggle down with a big pile of books, so I’ve put together a video of our favourite Autumn themed books – think lots of apples and pumpkins – to share with you. Check it out below, and let me know what your favourite Autumn reads for kids are in the comments!
If you enjoyed the video, I’d be really grateful if you would subscribe to my channel. Thanks!

Ahh what a lovely collection! I don’t think I’ve come across any of these before but will definitely keep a look out for them – loving anything with a pumpkin theme!
I love the Apple Pie ABC book, such a lovely read, my nephew and I enjoyed it big time.
Looks like a lovely collection if books, i have not heard of any of these. My youngest loves Pumpkins Pumpkins everywhere book she got given last year for Halloween :)
