Are you looking forward to a new reading season and possibly to the start of a preschool or a school year? Since we all love reading on Planet Smarty Pants, I want to share our fall book recommendations for kids age 2-7.

Fall Books for 2 and 3 Year Olds

Fall book recommendations for kids age 2 and 3

One of our fall favorites in this age category is Monster Musical Chairs that combines a fun story and a simple math lesson in counting down. We always loved “living math” books and, not surprisingly, now my daughter is not intimidated by this subject. You can make your own monsters to go with this book – just pick your favorite!

Fall Books for Kindergarten Age

Kindergarten age kids are appreciating humor and will probably enjoy Thelonius Tukey Lives by Lynn Rowe Reed just as much as my daughter did. We made these turkey hats to extend the book.

Fall Books for Kids Age 6 and Up

Older kids are ready for more complex books and more complex projects. This beautiful umbrella project is still on our list of things to do, and it would work beautifully with The Umbrella Queen by Shirin Bridgesa story set in Thailand.

    My kids were big fans of Monster Musical Chairs, and they still pull it out for a bit of fun at Halloween.
