Halloween Books We Love


I can’t say it tops Christmas, but almost in our house.  Our family has always loved (ok had an obsession) with Halloween.  It starts in early September when we bring out the Halloween books, mid-September trips to the pumpkin patch, and then of course our decorations are always up before October.  I love to bring out holiday books because they have a sort of unique novelty to them.  The kids love to look through them, and say “oh I remember this one!”.  It seems to also refuel their interest in reading, and most importantly, it’s FUN.  I hope you will check out and enjoy some of our family favorites that our 8, 6, and 2 year old love!  What are some of your Halloween Favorites?
