Fall picture books for an autumn theme, with book study companion activities to go with each book- perfect for Kindergarten and First Grade!
Here are some top favorite fall books for kids! 
Did I miss any? Leave your suggestions in the comment section below!

WE'RE GOING ON A LEAF HUNT
This book is great for story mapping! The characters head to different places to collect leaves...only to turn quickly around and head back again. I use this interactive chart for story sequencing {all pieces are attached with Velcro, so students can put the pictures in order AND change the directions of the arrows}
