My husband and I love reading kids Halloween books to our twins in September and October! This list has all of our favorite ones on it. These are fun to read to kids of all ages and in any grade.
Kids Halloween Book #1 – Spooky Things
Spooky Things is a Dr. Suess board book. It has a fun sing songy pattern to it. We love it because it has Thing 1 and Thing 2 in it.

We love the original Little Blue Truck book, so this Halloween one just had to be added to our fall library. It’s written by Alice Schertle. Shop the original Little Blue Truck here.
5. Peppa’s Giant Pumpkin
My son loves watching Peppa Pig, so we were excited when we saw that there’s a Peppa Pig Halloween book. Peppa and her classmates have a competition and she shows up with the biggest pumpkin. The author is Samantha Lizzio. I think it’s adorable that the book is in the shape of a pumpkin. Picture books like this are fun to read and look at.
