I’d be willing to bet that your kids already have their Halloween costumes picked out, and they’re counting the days until their bags and pails are overflowing with sweet treats. You’ll have a hard time keeping them occupied until it’s finally time to trick-or-treat, so we’ve picked out some can’t-miss Halloween books for kids that should help.
There’s nothing like an old classic—newly updated with Read & Play features—to make both parents and kids nostalgic for the Halloween fun in store. Join the Peanuts gang as they wait for the imminent arrival of the Great Pumpkin—and create lots of great holiday memories along the way.
For something that ups the spookiness quotient a bit, try R.L. Stine’s Night of the Living Dummy. The classic Goosebumps series may be responsible for more night light sales than all other kids' books combined.
Little tykes who are apprehensive about their first trick-or-treat adventures will love Franklin’s Halloween. Everyone’s favorite turtle and his friends spend the holiday having lots of fun, and sharing new Halloween traditions.
