Seasons by Alain Michel Jeunesse (Enchanted Lion Books) 

Blame it on the foggy San Francisco summer, but we're ready for fall. To teach your kids about the changing seasons – and to rediscover them yourself – no book is more beautiful than this pick. Each page has a word (or phrase) and illustration that represents summer, autumn, winter or spring. It's a fascinating way to introduce new vocabulary – like Migration, Avalanche, Fireworks and Abundance. Fun thing to do with your kids: come up with your own stories behind each of the pictures. We keep this one on the coffee table.
