This is a simple activity that can actually be done at any time of year, (using any small, flat objects, e.g. pressed flowers, herbs, petals) but I love autumn leaves, so this is an autumn activity for me!
I’ve always loved the way a good book can take you out of yourself – make you see and think things you’d never have thought of; make you reassess the world and your place within it. Aside from the joy of immersing myself in a story, I also love the instant bond of friendship you find when you meet someone who’s read the same books. My brother and I bonded over books as we grew up, but our journeys of learning to read and loving to read were very different.
