I can not believe summer is gone and Fall is here! I do love Fall. One of the first things that comes to mind when I think of the beginning of Fall is Apples! When my oldest child was little, he loved the book 10 Apples Up On Top and we would get it out every Fall and read it over and over, lol. I soon realized we needed more Fall books to add to our collection. This list of Apple Books for Children would have come in handy for me back then. I hope you can find some great books to read with your kids from the children’s book list below.
