Favorite Halloween Books

Greetings fellow book lovers! Today I am sharing {just a few} of our favorite Halloween books for you to enjoy with your littles. Some of these were my favorite growing up and I’m loving the chance to share them with my kids now. Each of these not only have darling story lines, but also charming illustrations. 
Picture books also make darling decorations around the house as well!

Favorite Halloween Books

  1. Witch, Witch Come to my Party by Arden Druce. Witch, witch come to my party…is an invitation to join bizarre characters in a most unusual fancy dress party. I believe this one is out of print, so getting your hands on one would be a steal! The illustrations are AMAZING in this one, although a few may be a little scary. Paisley was a little nervous around the witch, and not to give away the ending, but she ended up being ok with it. 
  2. The Monster Trap by Dean Morrissey. Paddy’s excited to spend a few days with his grandfather. But Pop’s house is a lot darker than Paddy remembers, and a lot spookier, too. When strange noises keep Paddy awake, Pop knows just what he must do — set a monster trap and catch the culprits! The illustrations are so cute and the ‘monsters’ are darling lately Paisley has been afraid of monsters but she told me that these monsters are so cute she wants one as a pet. 
  3. The Halloweener by Dav Pilkey. Oscar is short, like all dachshunds, and other dogs make fun of him. On Halloween he takes more ridicule than ever in his hot-dog costume, but one brave act makes him a hero. Classic Halloween book right here! Who else read this as a child and thought a weiner dog dressed up as a hot dog was positively hilarious? 
  4. Piggie Pie by Margie Palatini. Gritch the witch flies to Old MacDonald’s farm for some pigs to make piggie pie. This one may be my favorite one of the batch. The girls love it when I use silly witch voices and the pigs that hide from Gritch. Not too scary and the perfect amount of humor. 
  5. Frank was a Monster Who Loved to Dance by Keith Graves. Frank was a monster who wanted to dance. So he put on his hat, and his shoes made in France… and opened a jar and put ants in his pants! LOOK AT THAT FRANKENSTEIN! Seriously look at him. He’s so cute and a darling story to boot. And I can rhyme most of the time. I am a sucker for books with a good rhythm and not only do the words come out smoothly, Frank’s got rhythm too! 

There you have it. Just a few of our favorite children’s stories, the Halloween version anyway! Hope you love these as much as we do! What are some of your favorites? We’re always looking to try out more!

    I haven’t read ANY of those! So glad to have more book suggestions!
    My kids LOVE “The Little old Lady who was not afraid of anything” and “Too many Pumpkins!” I like them, too, so it’s a win-win. 😉
