Fall is now in full swing! Leaves on the ground, chai lattes, pumpkin spice everything. Yup it’s fall.
In that spirit,I have put together a small list of books to get the kids in the fall mood as well.

Bear Has a Story to Tell by Phillip C. Stead

This is such a funny story! Poor kitten doesn’t realize that the full moon is in the sky, and not a big bowl of milk on the ground!
