Colorful leaves, milder temps, holiday planning, corn mazes, wagon rides, and pumpkin-flavored everything. Who doesn’t love autumn?!
The trees know this is a special time of year as well. Their normal green foliage shifts from bland green to a symphony of blazing oranges, yellows, and reds. But within a few short weeks, the color festival is over as the leaves detach from their branches and drift to the ground. They let go in such a gentle and beautiful way. And with no regrets.
So to celebrate this glorious time of year, we’ve pulled together some wonderful booklists and fall-related activities that are sure to put a smile on your face.
Leanna from All Done Monkey has a fun list of Fall Crafts, Books, and Activities for Kids (she’s even included a few recipes!).
Feminist Books for Kids has a delightful list of 12 Diverse Fall Picture Books. We love that these multicultural autumn picture books feature all kinds of kids enjoying the season.
Mia at Pragmaticmom has a great list of 14 Autumn Picture Books with STEM and Diversity
Now go jump in some leaves!
And don’t forget–MCBDis looking for diverse children’s and YA book reviewers for their 2022 celebration! Go here for more information and to get your name on our list to review a free diverse book for MCBD2022.
