Need some Halloween books for toddlers and preschoolers?
One of my favorite things is owning book collections specific to each season / holiday. Think toy rotation but for books. These special mini collections are a great way to introduce a holiday to toddlers and begin building their background knowledge and understanding of the traditions.
I love getting my seasonal books out and ready, and my Halloween collection is one of my favorites. I love finding silly, sweet, but not really spooky stories for my toddlers to enjoy.
Many of the titles on my list are ones I had even in my elementary classroom so I know these books have longevity and staying power (aka they were worth buying).
What are the best Halloween books for toddlers and preschoolers?
Here’s my list of Halloween favorites that have been great for my kids (from toddlerhood to now 8 years old) as they learn more about this fun holiday season. Hopefully your family will enjoy some of the titles that my family loves year after year.
