Best Halloween Books for Kids

Sharing is caring!

I know it’s early, but today I’m posting our go-to list of Halloween books for kids. Hopefully this gives you just enough time to stock up before October hits.

We actually love using this as a Halloween tradition. We read 1 Halloween book every night leading up to Halloween.

We do this for Christmas too. We’re also considering doing it for Thanksgiving, but there just aren’t as many great Thanksgiving books that we’ve found yet. If you have any family favorites, please comment them below so we can check them out!

Halloween is probably my kids’ FAVORITE holiday, especially my son. He loves all things spooky/monster related. So we have a lot of favorite Halloween books for kids (37 listed so far)! Hopefully you enjoy reading these!
