Favorite Halloween Reads

I always enjoy reading Halloween picture books this time of year. 

From trick-or-treating aliens to brave little old ladies, these books aren't too scary, they're just plain fun...

Boo, Bunny! by Kathryn Galbraith
Eeek! Squeak! Halloween can especially spooky for a shy bunny. But when that shy bunny bumps into another shy bunny, friendship scares away fear. Once they join forces, not even the darkest night can stop them two brave bunnies from having the best Halloween ever.

Five Little Pumpkins by Dan Taccarino
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.The first one said, "Oh my, it's getting late."Get ready for some wicked fun as these five pumpkins run and roll! Readers will want to chant along with this popular rhyme again and again.

Ghosts in the House by Kazuno Kohara
At the edge of town lives a clever girl with a spooky problem: Her house is haunted! Luckily, she happens to be a witch and knows a little something about taking care of ghosts.

The Hallo-Wiener by Dav Pilkey
Oscar is short, like all dachshunds, and other dogs make fun of him. On Halloween he takes more ridicule than ever in his hot-dog costume, but one brave act makes him a hero.

The Little Old Lady who was not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams
A little old lady who is not afraid of anything must deal with a pumpkin head, a tall black hat, and other spooky objects that follow her through the dark woods trying to scare her.

Porkenstein by Kathryn Lasky
Dr. Smart Pig is a famous inventor, but he doesn't have any friends. His brothers were eaten by the Big Bad Wolf, and now he's all alone. Halloween is coming up, and he doesn't have anyone to go trick-or-treating with. Suddenly, Dr. Pig has an idea. He can INVENT a friend--a pig who is bigger and better and absolutely wolf-proof!

Space Case by Edward Marshall
A visitor from outer space lands unnoticed on Earth at Halloween, goes trick-or-treating with some children, and visits a classroom.

Happy Reading!
