Five books set in autumn
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
There’s no other season that inspires literature in quite the same way as autumn does – and there’s definitely no better time to snuggle up with a stack of your favourite new reads. As the clocks go back and winter looms, we’re celebrating with some wonderful books set in autumn.
They’re perfect for teaching children about the harvest season, getting them in the Halloween spirit and showing them why autumn is always one of our most beautiful seasons. Take a look below for five autumnal books we’re loving at the moment.
When a wild storm blows down a great oak tree, can Percy come to the rescue? Animals, storms, vivid colours: a classic celebration of nature in autumn. This is a glorious autumn story from Percy’s classic series – and little ones will love the fold-out surprise at the end!
The perfect funny, spooky rhyme to share on dark and stormy nights. One wild and windy night, there’s a knock at the door. Is the Monster of the Woods outside? A brilliant autumnal story with a wonderful message about friendship and judging situations.
What happens when you have a picnic on a really windy day? A funny story about getting lost in the woods, set against a backdrop of lovely autumnal illustrations – and, in our Autumn Book Club, you can get this and four other beautiful autumn picture books for jsut £9.99.
Looking for a Halloween read? Because we’ve found it for you! A witty, magical story about friendship and identity, this book is just the right side of scary – it beats trick-or-treating any day.
A great choice year-round, but there’s something about Anne of Green Gables that always makes us think of autumn. Anne is the kind of character that will become a friend for life – our mums loved this book, now we love it. It’s just that kind of story.
