What We're Reading

I love holidays. And one of our family traditions is to curve our reading list to go along with the season. Whether it be Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas or Easter, we have books that we bring out to help us celebrate the occasion. So, here are some of our favorites for Halloween. I'd love to hear if you have any. I'm always on the lookout for a great children's book. Please feel free to share your favorites in comments. Here's to curling up with some hot cider and your favorite little goblins. Happy spooking to everyone!


Our number one favorite is I'm Not Afraid of This Haunted House by Laurie Friedman and Teresa Murfin.

Who could resist the lovely rhyme of Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler?

The seasons books by Jimmy Pickering are delightful in their illustrations. Right now, we are reading It's Fall.

Mouse's First Halloween by Lauren Thompson and Buket Erdogan is one of R's favorites. She loves to make the Eeekkk noise.

R loves to turn the flaps in the pop up book, I'm Going to Eat You by Matt Miter and Jimmy Pickering.

I'm Going to Eat You, A Spooky Pop-Up Book (A Pop-Up Flap Book)

Of course, B and A now read some holiday chapter books by themselves. Some of these include The Best Halloween Ever by Barbara Robinson.

And Magic Tree House's A Good Night for Ghosts. (They won't give this series up even though they've been reading it since first grade. What can I say?)

There are a few more, but these are the favorites for now. Can't wait to hear yours!

  1. We do the same thing but we don't have as big of a collection yet. I love going into Indigo and seeing their seasonal books.

  2. Laura - I'm the same! I really try to get seasonal books out before the holiday flies by. I haven't yet seen some of these Halloween books. Yay! Two of our spooky favorites are: "The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything," by Linda Williams and "A Beasty Story," by Bill Martin Jr. and Steven Kellogg.

  3. We do that same thing...I even hide the holiday books so they're special when the holiday comes around! We love Arthur's Halloween the most!

  4. Thanks for posting this, I am always looking for good holiday books. I am a sucker for the Halloween ones, not sure why. We also love In the Haunted House by Eve Bunting.
