I was wondering what Halloween books are available for kids.
Speaking of libraries . . . I believe I remember one about a boy who was locked in a library and all sorts of strange things happened. It didn’t have anything to do with books . . . but there was some sort of haunting going on . . . I just can’t remember the name of it . . . or what happened to the boy . . .
I was looking around on Amazon and found a few titles that caught my attention:
This should be an excellent place to begin.
Scary, Scary Halloween is for ages 4 years and up. It’s a fun story about these eyes that see ghosts, goblins, witches, etc. passing by . . . You guessed it, the ghosts, etc. are children passing by in costume . . . and the eyes . . . none other than cats who want the children to go away so they can have their Halloween night fun.
We’re Off To Find The Witch’s House is a great adventure story for ages 3 to 7 years. It’s a wonderful read-aloud book that will be read over and over and over again. Four friends dressed in Halloween costumes set out to the witch’s house. They encounter other costumed characters along the way . . . But when they reach their destination . . . They see the witch and hear a loud screech . . . Never fear, the witch invites them inside for Halloween Party. This book is full of rhyming rhythmic text with call-and-response sections. It’s a good read that holds children’s attention.
Halloween Night is recommended for children from 4 to 8 years of age. It has the familiar rhyme of Night Before Christmas. “‘Twas Halloween night, and all through the house/Every creature was stirring, including the mouse.” There’s a grand mansion where all kinds of critters and creatures are preparing a Halloween buffet for the trick-or-treaters . . . but when they peer inside “But what they saw on that shadowy night/Made each little trickster shiver with fright!” It’s a fun read children love.
At The Old Haunted House is home to an assortment of creatures from “a warty green witch and her wee witchy one” to goblins, vampires, bats, black cats, werewolves, spiders, and more. Each page begins with At The Old Haunted House and the number of creatures increase with each turn of the page. Children 3 to 7 years will enjoy this book . . . and the great Halloween celebration the creatures prepare.
Halloween Hustle is a great story about a skeleton that dances and stumbles and falls apart on his way to Ghost’s Halloween Party . . . but never fear, his friends help put him back together . . . and at the party he’s in tip top shape for the dance contest. It’s a fun read for ages 3 to 7 years.
The Berenstain Bears and the Spooky Old Tree is the adventure of three bears who explore a spooky old tree . . . It’s a fun Berenstain Bears book for ages 4 to 8 years.
There should be a title or two that may interest you and your children . . . I’m kind of excited about the Halloween Hustle . . . and then there’s Halloween Night . . . and so many more titles I didn’t add here . . .
