Halloween books are a great way to get the kiddos prepare for this fun holiday. These books (see photos of each book in the sllideshow to the left) are all kid friendly and can help alleviate fears and/or concerns they may have about Halloween.
Little Oscar (a dachshund) is made fun of by the other dogs which gets worse when his Mom dresses him a Halloween costume which causes him to be ridiculed even more. But in the end, it is Oscar who saves the day. The Hallo-wiener is a funny story, great illustrations and solid message.
The Night Before Halloween
A Halloween spin on the classic Clement C. Moore poem which begins:
“‘Twas the night before Halloween, and all through the house, All the creatures were stirring, except for the mouse.
The monsters had gathered to plan and prepare,
For the trick-or-treaters who soon would be there….”
Halloween Bugs: A Trick or Treat Pop Up Book (Bugs in a Box Books)
Another great book from the Bugs in a box series full of giggles and fun (and sometimes creepy) bugs. Kiddos will love all the great pop ups and surprises behind the many doors. A delightful Halloween pop-up book that kids will want to enjoy over and over.
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
An old lady goes out of her cottage to get some herbs, spices, nuts and seeds when she started to walk home, she meets a spooky set of clothes that follow her along the way! This Halloween book sounds scarier than it really is, even younger children will enjoy this book.
This is an easy to read (and follow) story about a skeleton who has a bad case of the hiccups. He tries remedy after remedy, all which have humorous results. Little ones will giggle at the hic! Hic! Hic! that appear page after page ~ but be prepared to have them repeat it for days!
Clifford fans will want to hear this non-spooky tale over and over. A fun Halloween book which finds a familiar character having trouble finding a costume that fits. But it all works out in the end with everyone having a great Halloween together.
Happy Halloween, Little Critter!
This is a great book for little ones that are concerned about scary characters they may see on Halloween. When Little Critter goes to a costume party he is at first frightened by some of the outfits there. But those fears ease up when he realizes each of them are really his friends under the costumes.
