Last year, Raegan posted some of our favorite Halloween books. I wanted to add some more for you to check out this year.
Corduroy's Best Halloween Ever
This has been a favorite of Kaitlyn this year (age 3). She loves the Corduroy character.
This is another favorite this year. It is a lift-the-flap book and is a favorite of Kaitlyn and McKenna (18 months).
Where is Baby's Pumpkin? by Karen Katz
This is McKenna's absolute favorite book this year. She carries it around all over the house, she looks at it while I change her diaper...she loves it. I love Karen Katz. She makes great books. This is lift the flap along with some touch and feel.
Go Away Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley
This isn't necessarily a Halloween book, but one I think is great to read this time of year. Kaitlyn just giggles the whole way through this book. It is a great book for telling those mosters to go away and that they aren't scary!
The Haunted Ghoul Bus by Lisa Trumbauer
This is Brayden's (age 5) favorite this year. It is great for school-aged children. This book is great. It is a bout a boy who accidentally gets on the Ghoul Bus instead of the School Bus. At first he is scared, but comes to like the "scary" folks on the bus. By the end, he is super sad to see them go. Great for teaching to get to know people, and also great for kids who might have some exposure to scary things around Halloween to help them not be scared.
I Like Pumpkins by Jerry Smath
This is another favorite of Brayden and also Kaitlyn this year. This book talks about all of the fun things to do with pumpkins at this time of year.
Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin by Tad Hills
This is a new one with the beloved Duck & Goose characters.
Scaredy-Cat, Splat! by Rob Scotton
Also new and based on a popular character. Splat wants to be a scary cat at Halloween, but is too much of a scaredy cat to scar anyone.
