My daughter loves Halloween and everything about fall. In particular, she loves going to the pumpkin patch and knowing everything she can about the season. I figured one way to help her enjoy the season, even more, is to read books on fall. That way, she can learn more about what happens during fall and get everything she can out of it! Thus, I have compiled a list of some of the best fall books for preschoolers!
