Hello all!

The remaining days of September are few and far between, October is fast approaching! Last month, my recommended 'books for September' post was a very popular one and I've had lots of queries about stories and picture books for October since. So, here we go:

My favourite 'Go-To' Picture Books & Stories  for the month of October:

1. Farmer Duck 
This will be my theme & focus for the next fortnight in Junior Infants. I love this book and it will never get old for me.

Here's a lovely video of Michael Rosen reading Farmer Duck.

2. Oliver's Wood 
A lovely little story for the Junior classes. Nice for dealing with the concept of Day & Night too!

3. Owl Babies 
An oldie but a goodie. Owl Babies is always going to be beautiful and will forever give me the warm fuzzies!

This is a lovely video version of the story, always a nice treat for the little ones.

4. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?
I love this story for early in the year - it's great for memory work, recounts and Oral Language development.

Have you heard the singing version of "Brown Bear, Brown Bear what do you see?" It's a lovely performance song!

5. Two Hungry Bears
This is a funny, little story which deals nicely with the concepts of sharing and hibernation.

6. Hansel & Gretel
I always like to incorporate at least one fairy tale a month into my teaching and I always think Hansel & Gretel is a lovely one for October! I came across this printable PDF Hansel & Gretel Diorama last year - a handy little find!

7. There was an Old Lady who swallowed some Leaves -
Well, because it's always nice to have a fun one!

Speaking of Youtube, two of my go-to Autumn stories for a morning break on a wet October day are:
1. Leafy the Leaf who wouldn't leave
2. The Very Helpful Hedgehog
