New Fall Books for Kids

I received books for review. No other compensation was given. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

As the weather gets colder, it is the perfect time to snuggle in and read to the child in your life. I treasure those times with my children, and I know I am helping them develop a love of reading and so much more.

Check out these new fall books from Dawn Publications - one of my favorite companies for educational, entertaining, beautiful kids books.

 We love raw honey in our home. In fact, I would love to have a few beehives in our backyard. Honey is a sweet gift from nature. Did you know honey is linked in a very real way to dandelions, earthworms, mushrooms, the old oak tree and even the blue jays squawking in its branches?
If You Love Honey by Martha Sullivan and illustrated by Cathy Morrison explores how nature is connected and how we get our delicious honey - a great lesson for our kids. The author fell in love with bees as an amateur beekeeper, and then learned to appreciate flowering plants – even ones she once considered weeds – as an important nectar source. And then she realized how the plants were connected to insects and soil. Throughout the book, you and your children will learn a lot about how nature is connected. A simple but accurate diagram in the back of the book also explains how bees make honey and also pollinate plants, as well as the role of beneficial insects and decomposers. Make sure you also check out the activities and recipe for children. You can spend a whole week built around the fun you can have with this book!

Mighty Mole and Super Soil by Mary Quattlebaum and illustrated by Chad Wallace is a beautiful story about the little-known mole. Below your feet, Mighty Mole is on the move. Like a swimmer in dirt, she strokes through the soil. Her tunnels are everywhere! She finds food, eludes a predator, has a family, and helps to make Super Soil. Moles live almost everywhere yet are rarely seen. Similarly, soil is a largely invisible ecosystem and yet is vital to the health of the world. This book is not only very informational, it is beautifully illustrated! The pictures appear almost lifelike, truly gorgeous. Following the story, make sure you check out two “Explore More for Kids” pages, which offer a matching challenge and a review of some of the remarkable traits that make moles “mighty.” Two additional pages of “Explore More for Teachers and Parents” offers activities in visual and language arts, science, technology, and math.

Snuggle up on the couch for a good book, and then learn along with your children as you explore more in the many activities. Find more fun ideas for learning further at www.dawnpub.com.
