I thought I would put together a list of our favourite books for Halloween and Autumn. The girls love seasonal books and these are ones we really love reading time and time again. All links are affiliate links.
A short and sweet one, perfect for younger children. About a cat on Halloween night. The book is in the shape of a cat which meant it was an instant hit in the eyes of my girls.
Another sweet one for smaller children. This board book is in rhyme and it’s just a really sweet book. This is perfect for Norah who doesn’t like anything scary. This one is super cute.
One for older children and it’s a bit of a strange one. It’s like a guide rather than a book but Edie did enjoy it. It obviously touches upon death a little (nothing too horrific of course) but something to just be wary of if your child is a bit sensitive like Edith.
Trick or Treat
This was our latest addition to our Halloween book collection. It’s absolutely brillant. The story is in rhyme about a boy and girl going out on Trick or Treating. It’s a simple story but the magic happens with a UV torch. You can shine the torch on the pages to reveal UV drawings. It’s absolutely brilliant and I saw it via @littlebugtogs who is the best worst influence for me buying children’s books haha! You can’t buy this one new but World of Books sometimes has copies in!
It’s a classic and I feel like all children need this in their book collection!
Not a Halloween one but about Autumn and dealing with big emotions. The metaphor of the leaves is a brilliant one for little ones to explain big feelings. The illustrations are beautiful too!
Edith LOVES this book. It’s hilarious. It’s not scary at all but about a ghost who is a bit scared! It’s one of our favorites and I have lost count of how many times we have read it!
And finally, it’s become a classic. Pick a Pumpkin. We always read this before and after we going pumpkin picking. The girls love it and it’s just one of those books that make you warm and fuzzy inside.
I tend to add one or two new books to our seasonal ones each year. I would love to hear your favourites.
