I’m a huge fan of autumn, the nights drawing in, the crisp leaves on the floor. There is something quite special about it. For me it’s the perfect opportunity in the darker evenings to sit and read a story with a cup of hot chocolate!
There is such a great selection of books to get us in the mood ready for the next season. From non fiction to poems and more. I’m going to show you some of my favourites for children this autumn.
