Halloween books!

Did you know that October is national book month?! I thought that i would celebrate by sharing my favorite books to read to my class this month. Most of these are Halloween books, and I love them because they make what can be a pretty frightening holiday a little less scary, and a little more whimsical.  Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see my all-time-favorite pick!

Room on the Broom is an adorable story and the perfect book for talking about rhyming words!

The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything is a teeny tiny bit scary, until you get to the end of the story. It’s perfect for helping children overcome their fears, and they can act out the actions making it an ideal read-aloud.

The Biggest Pumpkin Ever is a very sweet story about the power of team work. This one is LONG, but it works really well for spreading out over a couple of story time sessions. 

Big Pumpkin is my all-time favorite Halloween book ever. I read this book to my class two or three times a week during the month of October. It’s repetitive so the children quickly learn the story and can help tell it, and the different characters are great for practicing all of your different voices. If you can find the audio recording that goes with it you are in for a huge hit!

Which books are your favorite to read in October?!
