TEN SPOOKY (BUT NOT SCARY) TODDLER HALLOWEEN BOOKS

A very happy beginning of October, friends! Even though this month is the beginning of the holiday craze, I look forward to it every year. Pumpkins, apples, Halloween - oh my!

My daughter is just as big of a fan of the holidays as I am, especially Halloween and Christmas. Well-rounded Christmas books are pretty easy to come by, but I find that I have a harder time with Halloween books. They're either too spooky for my toddler or the pictures would give me nightmares.

But this year, I've done all the hard work for you! I went to the library and sifted through a good chunk of Halloween books, then complied a list of all those I recommend for your toddler this Halloween.




"Slide and Find" SPOOKY || There aren't too many words in this book, but that's okay because the "slides" make up for it! Filled with 16 "spooky" slide and finds, your toddler can use their counting, matching, and deciphering skills to find the answer behind the slides. There is only one thing I warn: there is a picture of an actual spider in the book. My daughter has never batted an eye at it, but another toddler might (I did!). Check it out HERE.

Five Little Pumpkins || A Halloween classic! I will admit, this story doesn't make much sense to me, haha! But my three-year-old loves the pictures and we count the five little pumpkins on each page to add a little more education to the book. Short and sweet, it's also perfect for beginner readers! Check it out HERE.

Mouse's First Halloween || This book is so fun to read! Lilli gets a kick out of hearing me try the sound effects of Halloween nights. If your kiddo is especially prone to the scares of Halloween night, this book may be a good option. It talks about some of the elements of Halloween that are scary (bats, rustling leaves at night, etc.) and makes them into something joyful! Check it out HERE.

Mickey's Halloween || Attention Mickey Mouse fans! This is one of my daughter's favorite Halloween books because it has the flaps to lift, which she just loves. There's also an educational aspect to it, like counting and deciphering skills, that are perfect for toddlers. Check it out HERE.

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown || I don't think I need to say much about this classic! This book is perfect to read around the same time you and your babe watch the movie to see if they can spot the similarities and differences! Check it out HERE.

Room on the Broom || This book has turned into one of mine and Lilli's favorites! We loved it all the more when the movie came out on Netflix and we could read the book, then watch the movie (over and over again). Cute, quick, and perfect for little babes! Check it out HERE.

Halloween Heroes (Paw Patrol) || Paw Patrol quickly became popular over the last few months, and Lilli loves to read books that she recognizes the characters in. This one is also a board book, which can be quite handy if you've ever lived with a toddler. 😉 Check it out HERE.

There Was an Old Lady That Swallowed a Bat! || I think this one is my personal favorite! If you've ever heard of the book, "There Was an Old Lady That Swallowed a Fly" (one of my favorites as a child), this probably sounds familiar. Lilli and I have so much fun reading this together, and I think you and your toddler will, too! Check it out HERE.

The Spooky Wheels on the Bus || I'm pretty sure Lilli and I sing "Wheels on the Bus" about 50 times a day, so this book is right up our alley. A cute little sing-a-long that perfect for reading right before bedtime. Check it out HERE.

If You're Spooky and You Know It || I really love interactive toddler books because let's be honest: sometimes pictures just aren't enough for those busy body kiddos. This book is great for getting your child involved with reading, and Halloween! Check it out HERE.


What books do your toddlers love to read around Halloween time?? I'd love for you to tell me in the comments so I can check them out for my three-year-old!
