10 Fun Halloween Books for Kids that They’ll Read All Year Long

Before having kids, Halloween was just a so-so holiday that really only served to pave the way for Christmas (in my biased opinion, at least ;-)).  But AFTER having kids, Halloween became so much more! Kids LOVE Halloween and it can easily turn into one of those holidays that is never forgotten…regardless of the time of year. And that’s exactly the case with these fun Halloween books for kids.  

They’re perfect for getting excited in September and October, but really you’ll probably find yourself reading them all year long!

There are appearances from a lot of the regular favorites – the Berenstain Bears, the Little Blue Truck, and Pete the Cat.  And also some new favorites that are great enough to stand on their own. 

No matter which of these Halloween books you pick, your kids will love them and they will certainly elevate an already fun and exciting holiday!
