31 Halloween Books for the Whole Family

Our costumes have been picked out for weeks, there are spider webs just about everywhere, and we’ve already devoured an entire bag of candy that we bought for our trick-or-treaters. Needless to say, we are SO excited for Halloween. But since we are still weeks away my kids still haven’t mastered the art of patience yet (honestly, neither have I!), I have discovered a fun and easy way to countdown to Halloween—by reading! There are so many fun and creative Halloween themed books, whether you have babies who tend to chew on books instead of read them or if you are trying to find the perfect chapter book to get into your reluctant reader’s hands—I’ve got you covered! Check out this list of 31 fun Halloween themed books for kids.
