Fall Walk by Virginia Brimhall Snow

One of the must-dos during fall has to be taking a cool, leisurely walk (or many walks) in nature that will allow you to soak in the beauty of the season — preferably armed with this indispensable picture book.

With gracefully inked illustrations that are paired with rhyming verses about two siblings and their grandma taking a “fall walk”, what elevates this book is the thoughtful way in which it engages readers with clear illustrations of 24 different leaves — and the trees from which they come, such as oak, maple, elm, etc. — which are distinguishable by their shapes and the colors they take on during fall. This helps kids (and grownups) to recognise the more common leaves that they may come across, and makes nature explorations more meaningful and fulfilling.

There are even helpful notes at the end of Fall Walk on how you can press your own leaves and make leaf rubbings — perfect for fostering an interest in trees and appreciation for nature in general.
