Halloween Kids Books

As Halloween is fast approaching I wanted to suggest a kid’s book instead of a tooth decaying treat. These books are very inexpensive, starting at 99 cents, and will last a lot longer than candy.  The great thing about a child’s book is that they will remember it forever.

Clifford's First Halloween      It's the great Pumpkin Charlie Brown     Happy halloween

First the classics.  The one’s you will remember reading and the characters you will remember as a kid.  It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Clifford’s First Halloween, and Sesame Street’s Happy Halloween are all classics.  These are the books that give as much joy to the parent as to the child.

Room on the broom     Froggy's halloween

Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson and Froggy’s Halloween by Jonathan London are both good choices as the author’s have written many other stories.  If your child ends up loving either of these books you can continue to buy other books by the same author.  Kids have favorite authors also !!

Dragon's halloween     it's halloeen I'm turning Green     click, clack, boo

Dragon’s Halloween is written by Dav Pilkey, the same author who wrote the Captain Underpants books, and is the story of a (you guessed it) dragon who has a fun-filled Halloween, turning six small pumpkins into one big jack-o-lantern, going to a costume party, and taking a spooky walk in the woods.

It’s Halloween I’m Turning Green by Dan Gutman answers the question of what would happen if you ate a million pounds of candy in one night?   This book also has trivia and halloween-themed games, facts and puzzles.

Finally, Click, Clack, Boo!: a Tricky Treat by Doreen Cronin is a story of a farmer who dislikes Halloween but the farm animals throw a Halloween party anyway.  If you check the author page you will see a theme emerging as some of her other books are titles that begin with Click, Click, Moo, Click Clack, Peep, and of course Click, Clack Quackity-Quack. .

I hope you will have a well read Halloween this year.  Trick or treat, you decide.
