One of my favorite things to do with little ones is to head to the library and stock up on seasonal books. Right now, with fall just around the corner, there is a plethora of books to choose from.
Today, however, we will focus on just fall-themed books. Snuggle up with your little ones and read about autumn and leaves, squirrels and pumpkins.
