Inside: Autumn Bucket List with FREE Printable

By now, you’re well into fall mode with a regular routine and weekly commitments. Activities and routine can be great, but sometimes things can crowd out your commitment to regular read-aloud time.

If you’ve lost some of that reading momentum left over from the Summer Reading Bucket List, then we’ve got you covered with ideas to renew it this season.

We want to help your kids stay reading this fall because we know you’ll love the benefits:

  • Connecting as a family
  • Less screen time
  • Kids trying new books

(And that’s not to mention the many other benefits of reading aloud to your kids!)

Simplifying Things

We like to keep it simple around here. And we know you don’t need one more piece of paper to keep track of this school year.

You want to do more than survive the fall. You want to thrive. You want to make time to connect as a family and spark a love of reading in your home.

We’ve got you covered with something simple. Yes, it’s a piece of paper. But we promise it’s full of potential. This is not a checklist of shoulds. It’s inspiration for some family reading fun.

Simplified Autumn Reading Bucket List

The Autumn Reading Bucket List is nice and simple. We chose only a handful of suggestions for each category. With these ideas, you’ll have a few simple, attainable goals to kickstart your family’s fall reading.

It can be a reminder to set aside read-aloud time, which we know you already want. The list is fairly short, totally do-able, and won’t take you until the new year to complete.

Print it, tape it up, and get that easy win.

We suggest completing this one together as a family. The summer is a great time to encourage independent readers to try new books on their own. However, this busy season is the perfect time to gather everyone together for a family activity.

Bucket List Sections

The bucket list is broken into a few sections for simpler goal setting. Here’s what you’ll find.

  1. Types of books to read. Sometimes we need a nudge to pick up a book at the library or from our own bookshelves. Got a book about apples? Or one about the life cycle of trees? Read it. Check it off.
  2. Places to read. Take books outside with a blanket. Read around a campfire. You get the idea. Encourage kids that reading can be done anywhere. As they say, books are portable magic.
  3. Book Scavenger Hunt. This is where easy crossover happens and multiple boxes can be checked. A type of book you choose from the first section might have a character type listed on the book scavenger hunt. Win, win.

What About Age Ranges?

We’re all for kids reading outside of age recommendations when it’s appropriate. A great book a little below their level can do more for reading enjoyment than any ol’ book on the shelf with their age listed on it. A great book is always a better choice.

Books for Autumn Reading

Have a variety of books to accomplish more in a shorter time. Read a stack of picture books to check off some boxes, and read aloud from a longer chapter book to complete a few others.

Bottom Line: You’re going to connect as a family, accomplish this list, and spark renewed interest in reading this fall.
