Fall is Here! We love it!  And here are a few Fall picture books we love and will be sharing with you at storytimes this week:


Signs of Fall Books to Share:

 

These books, and many more, are available at the Handley Regional Library.  You can find the books listed here in the HRL catalog under the tag: #signsoffall.  Many of our collections of books on popular subjects are also available right here on the blog on the Booklists page and are also available in hardcopy at your library.

Fall and Autumn Songs, Poems, and Fingerplays to Share:

Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel
Gray squirrel, gray squirrel,
Swish your bushy tail.
Gray squirrel, gray squirrel,
Swish your bushy tail.

Wrinkle up your little nose,
Put a nut between your toes.
Gray squirrel, gray squirrel,
Swish your bushy tail.

Autumn Leaves are Falling Down
Autumn leaves are falling down, (Flutter fingers down)
Falling down, falling down.
Autumn leaves are falling down,
Falling on the ground.

The wind will blow them round and round (Walk in a circle)
Round and round, round and round.
The wind will blow them round and round
All around the town.

Take a rake and rake them up, (Pretend to rake leaves to the middle)
Rake them up, rake them up.
Take a rake and rake them up
All around the town.

Now let’s jump into the pile, (Jump into the circle)
To the pile, to the pile
Now let’s jump into the pile,
All around the town.

Leaves are Twirling
Leaves are twirling [leaves are twirling]
All around [all around]
They are falling very softly [they are falling very softly]
To the ground [to the ground]

Leaves are Falling Down (Sing to the tune of “Frere Jaques”)
Leaves are falling, leaves are falling,
On the ground, on the ground
Rake them in a pile,
Rake them in a pile,
Then jump in.
Then jump in.

The Leaves are Falling Down (Sing to the tune of “Farmer in the Dell”)
The leaves are falling down
The leaves are falling down
Red, Yellow, Green, and Brown
The Leaves are falling down.

Five Little Leaves
Five little leaves on the tree next door
One fell off and then there were four
Four little leaves all over the tree
One fell off and then there were three
Three little leaves where the wind blew
One fell off and then there were two
Two little leaves sitting in the sun
One fell off and then there was one
One little leaf in the tree all alone
The wind blew and blew now there are none!

Two Little Blackbirds
Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill.
One named Jack and one named Jill.
Fly away Jack, fly away Jill.
Come back Jack, come back Jill.

Two little blackbirds flying in the sky.
One named Low and one named High…

Two little blackbirds sitting on a pole.
One named Fast and one named Slow…

Two little blackbirds sitting on a gate…
One named Early and one named Late…

Make your own Leaf Men!  Lois Ehlert’s book provides a perfect prompt for making your own leaf collage creatures as well as an excuse to go on a nature walk.  As a bonus, take the book with you on your search for leaves; the endpapers serve as a miniature leaf-identification guide.

 

We hope you can join us for storytime at one of our Handley Regional Library Branches this week!

Check the calendar for more children’s programs and special events throughout the system.
