Fall into Autumn with these 12 Picture Books

By Miranda Rosbach /

Whenever autumn rolls around, I play an imaginary mental merry-go-round of determining whether it is truly my favorite season. On the one hand, it beckons the arrival of colder weather; while on the other, it seems to extend summer into a sort of colorful coziness that feels like a grand swan song. In truth, I honestly love it. Long before pumpkin spice lattes had their own acronym, my family would pilgrimage up the Rocky Mountains and take autumn hikes, surrounded by the colorful tones of pumpkin, pomegranate, and turmeric. Nowadays we take our girls apple picking and make cider donuts to celebrate the arrival of sweater weather. No matter how many autumns you’ve experienced, the season always feels ripe with possibility. So grab your scarf and a mug of tea—these 12 books are best enjoyed with company.

By Nicole Boggs /

It’s important to instill a sense of gratitude in your child from a young age. Teaching your Little to say a simple thank-you can help foster a lifelong mindset of gratitude. Using the All About Me photo book template, I created a custom ‘I am Thankful’ photo book, and completed with my 3-year-old daughter, Clara.  It was incredible to get a glimpse into her world, and the keepsake we created is absolutely priceless.

A Summer Board Book Story

By Miranda Rosbach /

A few months ago I was at a conference in Washington, D.C., and saw another family enjoying brunch on a weekend morning. Tucked into the folds of their stroller canopy I saw a familiar spiral binding peeking out. To which I knowingly questioned, “Is that a Pinhole Press book?” The surprised mother, looked up, slightly confused, then enthusiastically said, “Yes, yes it is!” Since becoming a parent I often look for those little moments. Making connections with strangers, usually parents with small children too, and somehow acknowledging that Hey, we’re on the same team.
