Fall is my absolute favorite season, and in my crazy mind, September 1 is when fall begins! I start ordering the Pumpkin Creme Cold Brew from Starbucks, I order my new fall candles from Bath and Body Works, and I slowly start pulling out a few fall decorations.
In order to help celebrate my favorite season, I rounded up a few of my favorite fall picture books for you all. These are some classics, and a couple funny ones that your students will love. Enjoy and happy pumpkin everything!!!
