26 Picture Books You Won’t Want to Miss This Fall

by Devon A. Corneal

Fall brings with it many things — back to school shopping, fading tans, alarm clocks, routines, homework, chilly temperatures, darker evenings, and warmer dinners. Fall is something else as well. It’s the time of picture books, in time for classroom story time, “just right reading levels,” accelerated reading quizzes, and bedtime procrastination.

Get ready for eagerly anticipated sequels like The Day the Crayons Came Home and The Full Moon at the Napping House and new creations from beloved authors like Eric Carle. Discover talented first-time writer/illustrators like Joseph Kuefler and dive into the latest collaborations from award winners like Philip and Erin Stead. Imaginary friends make an appearance, as do inquisitive animals, demanding monsters, and curious children. If you want touching or funny or unusual or classic, there’s something here to pique your interest. Put in your pre-orders now and enjoy the latest in children’s literature along with apples and autumn leaves.
