Halloween Reads….

I love October!! YEAH!! It is finally here.

One of my favorite things to do during this time of year is cuddle up and read to my kiddos.

I wanted to share a few of our favorite Halloween books.

Franklin’s Halloween by Paulette Burgeois and Brenda Clark.

This happens to be my kids all time favorite book.  We got it when we lived in the Caribbean and as you can tell, it has made the journey with us to each destination.

This book even inspired both my boys to be Frankenstein or “Franklinstein” as he is known in the book, for Halloween.


My mom picked up the next two books for my kids a few years ago.  They are written by Mark Kimball Moutlton and illustrated by Karen Hillard Good. 

They have a few other holiday books that we have found to be adorable.

The illustrations are amazing…

and the message is always really sweet.

Twisted Sistahs is about three witch sisters with the most adorable names.  My kids laugh every year when I read it to them. (most of the time I am laughing too.)

Miss Fiona’s Stupendous Pumpkin Pies has an adorable message about the beauty within.

Both books rhyme which make reading them pure enjoyment.

Finally, Mouse’s first Halloween by Lauren Thomspon, and illustrated by Buket Erdogan.

This book is simple.   A perfect nap time story for a toddler.

It goes through fall and Halloween treasures that we look forward to each year.  It is not spooky, and does not scare young children.

It just helps get them excited about this time of year.

I love every thing about this season.  I love the feeling that is in the air.

I like to help produce that feeling at home a little too.

Good books, can always do that.

Oh, and if mother nature was trying to help play along with this holiday season, look what creepy thing was right outside my house yesterday morning. I almost walked right in to it.
