It was the first days of November, and all of the grown ups went to the pumpkin patch to pick the last of the pumpkins for pies, breads, soups and snacks.
They were busy working when an Autumn fairy came to them and said it was time to start putting on coats and hats because November was soon to be cold and grey.
The grown ups heeded the words of the fairy and went home to gather the coats and hats, and they found their children were out, playing, all over the village.
|Thank you especially to the Antonia family who helped this magical story come alive.|
Just then an acorn child came to them and said that the small hands of little girls and boys would help gather their little ones and dress them with their beautiful coats and caps.
And that they did, and the acorn children celebrated Autumn with the loving children.
