It’s almost time for Halloween! How are you celebrating in your town or school? Does it look different for you, or are things fairly similar?
I can’t let a holiday go by without sharing my favorite books for the season! It’s just not in me. Here are my favorite Halloween books.
The Legend of Spookley The Square Pumpkin. Maybe I love this book because my first-grade teacher (read about her here and how she gave me a love for books!) read this to our class on Halloween. But the message behind it is still great.
Piggie Pie by Margie Palatini
Room On The Broom by Julia Donaldson
It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown By Charles M. Schulz because how do you say no to a classic?!
Pete The Cat: Five Little Pumpkins by James Dean. I think there’s a special element of fun when a beloved, well-known book character celebrates the same holiday you do.
The Dead Family Diaz by P.J. Bracegirdle: it teaches about Day of the Dead from a unique perspective from the dead world side instead of the living world. It will also make you wonder if maybe the movie Coco stole some ideas and influence from this book….?
