We looove Halloween in our house. My son has pumpkins in his room all year long, and of course we read our Halloween books all year long too! Here are some of our favorite children’s books for Halloween.
Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson
Illustrated by Alex Scheffler
The sing song rhymes in this book always make me smile as I read to my children. The witch drops her hat, her bow, and her wand. Each time she flies down to retrieve a lost item, she comes back up with a new animal friend. Very cute book!
The Hallo-Wiener by Dav Pilkey
This was one of the first books my son ever checked out from the school library in Kindergarten. What a pick!
All the other dogs are always making fun of Oscar because he is a wiener dog. His mother doesn’t help when she gives him a hot dog bun for a costume for Halloween. But, when the other dogs get into trouble on Halloween, it is Oscar who saves the day. Will he finally get some respect from his peers?
Skeleton for Dinner by Margery Cuyler
Illustrated by Will Terry
Big Witch and Little Witch want to invite Skeleton, Ghost, and Ghoul for dinner. Skeleton sees the guest list, and thinks the witches want to eat him for dinner. This book has adorable illustrations and beautiful blue, purple, and black scenery.
