Halloween is 10 days away, so I have been digging out our Halloween books and reading them to my kids at night. My kids are getting older, so it’s time to update our collection. I was talking to ones my best friends yesterday and she and I both agreed that October is almost crazier than the month of December. In addition to school, sports and other activities, we cram in several Halloween and fall-related events. Reading to my kids is one of the ways that I relax with my kids during these hectic times – sometimes I’m not sure if it is more beneficial to me or to them!
Since I was looking anyway, I thought I would share some of the great Halloween Books for Kids that I have either purchased, plan to purchase, or thought looked interesting. You’ll find that I’m a little heavy in the 4-8 year old category – but with a 4 and an 8 year old, that’s where my focus lies right now. ;-)
(On a side note: be sure to check out my 14 Great Christmas Books for Kids list as well!)
