The summer is over. School has started. Soon the leaves will start to change and the evenings will get cooler. But that doesn't mean the kids won't have anything fun to do.
Look to the fall issue of Chicago Parent Going Places, the ultimate guide to family fun, for things to do, pick, create and discover. From picking pumpkins and apples to creating cards and costumes, this edition has it all when it comes to fall.
And it's almost Halloween, which means your munchkins will soon be transforming themselves into adorable animals and ghastly ghouls. We have 47 different shows, pumpkin patches and spooky places to get the family ready for the big haunt.
Cool weather can also be a great time to sit down and read a good book. We have helpful tips from the story time pros, plenty of places to listen and a few of our favorite books to get you started.
Also, check out the latest fall edition of our biannual Chicago Baby, our introductory magazine dedicated to being a new parent. Whether it is getting your dog ready for baby, having a restful "Babymoon" getaway before the big day or understanding the benefits of breastfeeding, Chicago Baby has you covered.
