An Autumn Reading List

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.

Little Woman
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.

 

 

Cranberry Thanksgiving
This is a charming little tale that has a wonderful twist to it!

 

 

 

Betsy-Tacy Series
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?

  1. I tend not to re-read books, because I have so many I’ve still yet to read. *lol* But the entire Little House series was one of my favorites when I was growing up. I loved reading about how different life was back then. That probably explains why I also enjoyed other children’s historical fiction like the American Girl books and Scott O’Dell.

    1. I hear you on having so many books I want to read and not enough time! 🙂 I like to just pull these out and re-read my favorite bits and parts.
      I love the Little House series still and I read the American Girls books over and over again when I was younger. I credit both with my love of history now.
