Harvest and Littles

Saturday, October 12, 2013

There is something so magical about Autumn.  The trees are changing, the air smells different. Sure, as adults we know what all these changes mean, but for little kids these changes can be scary on a level. And that is why I feel this season is such a great opportunity to build memories for your children that will carry throughout their lives.

We recently discovered a fun little book, Fletcher and the Falling Leaves by Julia Rawlinson. It was perfect for my little guys. You see, my oldest has noticed how the leaves are changing and falling and for him it was a little unnerving.  He is gentle spirit and was worried over the tree. This book discusses just that sentiment- a favorite tree must be sick since all the leaves are falling off. However that process is important for what is in store for the tree. And Fletcher gets to learn that nature knows how to care for itself, and we get to watch the beauty unfold.
 


Watching the beauty of nature, of the created world, unfold around us is a gift I hope to show to my children so they can be grateful for it.

Autumn is the perfect time to point them to such amazing gifts!

I'm sharing a  little on what we do in our home to celebrate the changing of a season, and how I plan on creating memories this year over at Simply Helping Him.  I'd love for you to stop by and check it out!    Rather... It's also on a new post on Reading List...
