Cozy Reads For Babies, Toddlers and Kids!

I’m ready for fall!
I’m already thinking about those cool crisp days and the leaves turning colors. I'm looking forward to trips with my grandson to the apple orchard and the pumpkin patch. We'll warm our souls drinking apple cider, or enjoy the sweet taste of cider donuts while sitting by the firepit. I'm also thinking about cozy books to read. I especially like snuggling up with a great read-aloud book with my grandson on the nights we share, those nights he calls, “Mimi Time.” Here are some snuggly, cozy reads to share with your little ones:

Leif is a leaf. A worried leaf. It is autumn, and Leif is afraid to fall. "All leaves fall in the fall," say the other leaves. But Leif is determined to find a different way down, and with his friend Laurel, he uses the resources around him to create a net, a kite, a parachute in hopes of softening his landing. The clock is ticking, the wind is blowing. What will happen when a gust of wind pulls Leif from his branch?
