When this season of autumn roles around, I always get hit by something I like to call “Awakening of the Memories”. Okay, it sounds nice, but it is just my really fancy term for a tender sense of nostalgia as the days get shorter and colder. 🙂 I always like to pull out some of my favorite children’s books around this time and peruse them. They are treasures to me that really remind me of the simpler times. I thought I would share some of my favorite children’s books to re-read in the autumn.
Set in New England during the Civil War, I read this story when I was younger and absolutely have never forgotten the beautiful, homey world of the March sisters.
Little House in the Big Woods
These books are classic Americana! They are some of the first novels I remember reading. I could read about the harvest and winter preparations of the Ingalls over and over again.
This is a charming little tale that has a wonderful twist to it!
I was introduced to these a little later in life, but I love the gentle stories so much! The seasons pass so delightfully on the Big Hill.
The Ox-Cart Man
This a sweet story about an idyllic farm life with such beautiful, rustic pictures.
How about you? Do you have any favorite books that you love to read during this crisp, wood-smoke, golden-leaved season?
