The 7 Best Halloween Books for Kids

Are you looking for some good Halloween books to read with your child this month?

If so, check out this article from the blog Modern Parents Messy Kids:

I liked Halloween as a child (what’s not to like?) but as an adult, I find I enjoy it even more.

I’m off the hook for dressing up, since I can costume my children instead, it’s the beginning of the holiday season, and I can finally start pulling out my Halloween book collection.

If you’re looking to bulk up your own collection, here are seven great ones to buy or check out from the library:

1. Skeleton Hiccups by Margery Cuyler and S.D. Schindler
This off-beat book about a skeleton desperately trying to get rid of the hiccups is sure to hit your child’s funny bone (can you guess what finally does get rid of his hiccups?).

2. Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
This is the #1 Halloween book on Amazon, and for good reason. It’s just so sweet and fun. A witch, zipping along on her broom with her cat, loses various items and is helped by a few kind creatures who, in return, just want to take a spin on her broom. Is there room for all of them?

3. The Spider and the Fly by Mary Howitt and Tony DiTerlizzi
This classic poem gets a decidedly spooky twist, thanks to Tony DiTerlizzi’s black-and-white illustrations. What better way to introduce your child to poetry?

You can find her other 4 picks here.
