No tricks here! These books are pure treats.
Halloween is arguably one of the best holidays for kids. The list of reasons why it’s a favorite goes on and on, but we think it’s safe to say that Halloween is a 100-percent kid-approved event for these reasons: the pounds of candy (for free!), the DIY Halloween costumes for kids, the best Halloween treats, and did we mention the candy?
Beyond the dressing up, trick-or-treating, your family’s annual trip to a pumpkin farm, and putting your best pumpkin carving ideas on display, look no further than your bookshelf to find the magic of Halloween in books for kids, in many cases featuring some of their favorite storybook characters.
From the sweeter side of Halloween (think The Berenstain Bears, Pete the Cat, and the clever Goodnight Goon—a hilarious take on the children’s classic Goodnight Moon) to the slightly more spooky chapter books by Roald Dahl (The Witches) and the popular Goosebumps series, your children will discover some instant favorites to add to their library.
Elementary-aged children and toddlers alike will soak up the Halloween spirit page after page, and parents will be happily nostalgic over It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Nancy Drew mysteries. Check out this creatively creepy, just-spooky-enough selection of Halloween books written especially for kids.
