It’s no secret that having kids really lets you enjoy the holidays more. I love decorating and doing as many festive things as possible with our kids during September-December. Halloween is by far my favorite holiday so I really love embracing all the fun traditions. When Henry was 16 months old I started collecting Halloween books for him to read throughout the month of October (similar to the 25 books of Christmas). It’s so fun to add more to our collection each year and now that Evelyn is old enough for books, they have really enjoyed reading them together. Unlike the Christmas books in our collection, the Halloween books are mostly short reads so they hold the kids’ attention span (even it that means I have to read each one five times in a row).
Here is my toddler approved Halloween book list!
I totally agree, kids really do make the holidays even better! This is a great idea to start collecting holiday books and then pull them out every year and this list is great! Have you heard of The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything? It's an oldie but another good one!
I haven't heard of that one! Thank you for the suggestion! Definitely going to add to my list 🙂

These would be great in my classroom! I teach English as a second language to first graders and these would really help inspire them for Halloween activities and writing!
I'm loving these book ideas! My son recently started preschool and I'm now OBSESSED with ordering scholastic books for him! Ha!
This is seriously so cute, I adore this! I want to buy some Halloween books just for the heck of it 😉 xx Adaleta Avdic

Oh what darling items for baby! I have recently discovered Finn and Emma pajamas and I couldn't love them more. Also the Itzy Ritzy cart cover was a wonderful baby item for us.
