Autumn is approaching and this offers a wonderful opportunity to share stories and information with your learners about this transitional time of year. You can find all kinds of titles about autumn in the children’s collection of your local library.
Fall Weather: Cooler Temperatures by Martha Rustad talks about the changes that children will notice such as cooler temperatures, shorter hours of daylight and the approach of winter.
Fall Leaves: Colorful and Crunchy, also by Rustad, is a great book about what happens to the trees and leaves in autumn, and also includes an autumn art project.
For those children that may be going to school for the first time, they may appreciate The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. When Chester the raccoon is reluctant to go to kindergarten for the first time, his mother teaches him a secret way to carry her love with him.
Finally, In Monsters Love School by Jack Austin, Nervous monsters attending school for the first time learn new things, make friends, and sample Chef Octi's special School Gruel.
Don’t forget, your local children’s librarian is a wonderful resource when trying to find that special title for your learner!
