Fall is a wonderful season, with plenty of natural beauty. There are Halloween parties and fall celebrations. Full of delicious smells and tastes, autumn is a wonderful time of year and one of the seasons most recognized by young children because of the changing colors of leaves. Autumn offers opportunities to learn across the curriculum, from understanding the science of how a pumpkin grows to counting the number of apples ripening in a tree. These resources offer a variety of ways to celebrate the season at the school with students and their families.
Keep in mind that these books are just a sampling of what we have on our shelves, and we are always more than happy to order anything you might need.

I’m Trying to Love Spiders will help you see these amazing arachnids in a whole new light, from their awesomely excessive eight eyes to the seventy-five pounds of bugs a spider can eat in a single year!
