On Our Montessori Bookshelves this Autumn

And, suddenly it's Autumn! Autumn is one of my favorite times of year for so many reasons. The world is just filled with this renewed sense of beauty and wonder. And it just so happens that our collection of Autumn books is also one of my favorites. There are just so many great topics to explore during these few months. I typically bring out our books around the Equinox and leave them out for a few weeks before starting to move on.

Here is a look at the books we  actually own and have out on our shelves for fall. I have broken these down roughly by age, but really my older kids enjoy them all.

Baby+

Autumn (Gerda Muller) - beautiful and wordless

18-months+

Apples and Pumpkins - a Family favorite
My Autumn Book - this entire series is very cute
Autumn (Shirley Hughes) - you can get a stand alone book part of this collection or as a chapter in this book.

2.5-years+

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn - my kids love this whole series too, later in November I'll put out Goodbye Autumn, Hello Winter
Winter is Coming - Gus' absolute favorite last year and I've already read it SO many times in the last couple days this year
Leaf Jumpers - a sweet poem
Hello Harvest Moon - this likely would appeal to the older end of this age bracket
Fall Leaves - I love that this has 2 levels of text you can read 
Ox-Cart Man - such a classic, not necessarily an Autumn book but we always bring out this time of year
Every Autumn Comes the Bear - another one of Gus' favorites

6-years+

The Apple Cake - a beautiful story
We Gather Together - really dense, we read on the Equinox but it's not something my kids gravitate towards a ton
Woody, Hazel, and Little Pip* - Nora's favorite 
The Festival of Stones: Autumn and Winter Tales of Tiptoes Lightly* - another one of Nora's favorites, this whole series is delightful for second plane children

* books marked include fantasy

Just like our Christmas collection, remember that we have bought these books slowly over many years. You don't need them all at once if you are new to Montessori or looking to create a collection of Autumn books.
