Here are some of my favorite read-aloud Halloween books for preschoolers and toddlers. Enjoy!
Halloween by Harry Behn - simple poem, minimal words, spooky illustrations, sets a Halloween mood
Brooms are for Flying by Michael Rex - great for action, get the kids up and moving!
Boo Who? A foldout Halloween adventure by Lola M. Schaefer - fun for tiny tots
Ghosts in the House by Kazuno Kohara - simple wording, easy to follow, great retro-look illustrations!
Plumply, Dumply Pumpkin by Mary Serfozo - rhyming fun extolling the virtues (or flaws) of pumpkins, “Finally on a winding vine he spies a pumpkin fat and fine.”
Boo Who? A spooky lift-the-flap book by Joan Holub - an oldie, but goodie, another choice for tiny tots
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams - another old tale, this one’s a cumulative rhyme, great for participation
Halloween Night by Elizabeth Hatch - another cumulative tale in the same vein as “The House that Jack Built”
