I’m an avid fan of great children’s read alouds. Here are a few of my all-time seasonal favorites. Let me know if you feel I’m missing a title!
Happy Halloween Little Critter, by Mercer Mayer: Little Critter and Little Sister go to a Halloween party.
Trick or Treat Little Critter, by Mercer Mayer: Yes, there is a pattern here. I adore this series. Trick or treat surprises with Little Critter and Little Sister always delight.
Which Way to Witch School, by Scott Santoro: A school for witches whipping up lessons.
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, Charles, M. Shulz: Does this really need an introduction. One of the greatest Halloween stories ever told. At least, according to me. It never grows old.
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything, by Linda Williams: Spooky sounds abound as the little old lady makes her way along a moonlit path.
Room on the Broom, by Julia Donaldson: A witch and her cat need some help retrieving the items they’ve dropped while flying around on their broomstick.
The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat, by Stan Berenstain: A trick with the treats doesn’t go so well for Brother and Sister Bear. Another well-loved favorite!
Little Witch, by Anna Elizabeth Bennett: An oldie, but goodie tale of a little witch sneaking into a school with humans and all of the fun that ensues.
The Best Halloween Ever, by Barbara Robinson: Welcome to the third book in the Herdman series. As a child, I couldn’t get enough of their antics. Is Halloween truly cancelled because of the trouble they’ve caused in the past?
Junie B. Jones, Boo… and I Mean It, by Barbara Park: A hilarious tale of Junie B. trying to overcome her fear of trick-or-treating.
The Witches, by Roald Dahl: I look forward to reading this EVERY year. Grandmamma teaches her grandson how to spot real witches.
