Children's Halloween Book Picks!

When I was a little kid my mother used to buy me a book for each holiday. Halloween was no different so I own a score of beloved childrens books that were read and reread as I grew up. Do you want to do the same and find yourself lost amongst the slew of Halloween books that are on the market? Do you want some of the cutest children books around for your little ghoul or goblin in a nice compiled list? Yes I have that right here!

Corduroy's Best Halloween Ever!
The cuddly Corduroy has returned for this cute Halloween book with a common lesson taught to children. When Corduroy and friends plan a Halloween party and to go Trick-or-Treating Corduroy is left stuck without a costume! All of the costumes he finds he realizes his friends are planning on going as. What's a bear to do? After much searching Corduroy finds a great costume that no one else has. Happily, he waits for Halloween night, only to discover that one of his friends costumes broke! With some creative thinking and the fact that he's such a great friend, Corduroy gives up his costume and makes one of his own. The night is saved and this Halloween turns into the best one yet!

We're Off to Find the Witch's House
On Halloween night four children begin their journey to the witch's house. Through the creepy eery light they travel and stumble upon a host of different monsters! Fearful, they escape and continue on their way, eventually arriving at the witches house where they discover they were fearful over nothing! With beautiful illustrations rich with color and a host of adorable costumes this is a cute book to read aloud to your children.

The Littlest Pumpkin
This has to be my favorite book of the three listed. The adorable artwork is cheerful and warm while the littlest pumpkin is so cute that I wish I could have it for myself! What would Halloween be like if you were a pumpkin? It's that time of the year where pumpkins are placed on display and people fawn over them. But for the littlest pumpkin in the pumpkin patch no one seems to want it and yet, that's all the little pumpkin wishes for: to be chosen and placed on display as a jack-o-lantern. But when Halloween night arrives and the pumpkin patch closes, the little pumpkin realizes that it is alone and unchosen. But don't worry, this story ends on a happy note!
