Celebrate Fall with Five Children’s Books About Exploring Outside

Leaf Man
Lois Ehlert
From favorite children’s author Lois Ehlert, Leaf Man is a favorite fall book not only because of the beautiful illustrations made from real leaves but also because it provides you with an instant activity – making leaf people!

Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf
By Lois Ehlert
Another classic from Lois Ehlert, Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf always mesmerizes children with its vibrant colors and cut out pages.

We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt
By Steve Metzger
We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt is similar to the classic book Going on a Bear Hunt. It makes for an interactive read-aloud experience as children act out the story as they chant along, but it is also the perfect book to read before going on an actual leaf hunt or nature walk.

My Leaf Book
By Monica Wellington
It’s the perfect book to use after taking a nature walk and collecting leaves. Children can use the book to help identify their specimens.

A is for Autumn
By Robert Mass
A is for Autumn by Robert Maas takes us through the alphabet on a fall photography journey.
