Autumn Book List

Has it been a little bit brisk lately in your neck of the woods?  Well, depending on your location of the globe... maybe, maybe not.  But here in North America (especially the more northern parts where Whitney and I reside... be it a mere 8 hours apart) the leaves are changing colors, the apples & pumpkins are ready to harvest and the kids have started wearing long sleeve shirts again.  Yep, it's fall!

We've joined forces to create a list of several books that might get you in the mood to bake an apple pie, carve a pumpkin, locate your leaf rake or at least put on a hoodie.  (Click on the title to see the book.)
