Happy Autumn, everyone! As a librarian, I read a lot of books, which means my two young children are also exposed to a lot of books too. The books that I am going to recommend to you have been tested by my kids in our readings, and perhaps I've even used them for a library story time. In these posts, I will link the books to the San Jose Public Library catalog when available, and if not, to Amazon.1. The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree by Gail Gibbons. This is a simple story that goes through the seasons of the year, using Arnold's special tree as a focal point. My four year olds are wild about this simple book.
