There is so much uncertainty around at the moment - will we return to home schooling this year? Will our children need to isolate at home soon? Can we still enjoy the autumnal days out we are used to? I find the unknown very stressful and I am someone who likes to be prepared. I also absolutely was not a fan of home learning and really hope I do not have to return to it any time soon (although if we do - so be it, things could be a lot worse for us and I am prepared to do my bit).  

I know that from 14+ years of parenting, one of the best things you can do for your children is encourage a love of reading. Our house was always filled with books when my three were younger (now we tend to use the library / school library for longer reading books) and I was that parent who would buy seasonal books and rotate them too. When the kids were little, we would always have a basket of seasonal books by the fire. They are brilliant to have when friends visit too - little ones are usually always inquisitive when it comes to new books. 

Reading is lovely time to bond with your children, is a brilliant way to start conversations and discussions, is a good way to encourage imagination and an excellent way to build your child's vocabulary and knowledge. These are just a few of the benefits!

If you end up with your children at home with you again, reading together is usually a lovely educational and stress-free activity with lots of benefits. Even if we do not end up learning at home, Autumn is the perfect time to snuggle up on the sofa with a book together. 

Today I am sharing a list of lovely books with an Autumnal theme for you to add to your Autumn book basket. I am definitely not saying go out and buy all of these straight away, it took us a good few years to build our collection and even having a couple to choose from for a bedtime story is lush.  

Seasonal books are also a brilliant idea if relatives ask for gift ideas.  You can also keep a list of these books on your phone and look out for them in charity shops and libraries (if you are able to access yours). 

I personally love giving seasonal books as a gift as they can be enjoyed year after year, form part of a tradition and can be passed on to other children to enjoy when (or if) children grow out of it. If you are looking for a little pick me up / gift that can be ordered online and posted, a book will do the job.
