Reading books with your children provides them with an opportunity to learn new vocabulary. It can also help them learn about new topics or holidays and understand how the world works. A number of these books also include counting, so they are also great for helping children learn about and understand numbers.
Best Halloween Books for Preschool
Meg and Mog (Helen Nicoll and Jan Bienkowski). The Meg and Mog series is about a witch whose spells don’t seem to go as planned. This is a link to a set of 10 of the Meg and Mog books.
Funny Bones (Janet and Allan Ahlberg). The original Funnybones book is a classic story about a skeleton family that goes out one night to scare people. There are also some follow up stories but I haven’t read these and there seem to be mixed reviews.
Room on the Broom (Julia Donaldson). This is another classic (rhyming) book by Julia Donaldson about friendship and quick wits.
Ten Little Monsters (Mike Brownlow). Ten Little Monsters is a fun counting book about 10 little monsters that disappear one at a time. It has great rhymes! There are several other similar books such as Ten Little Pirates, Ten Little Princesses, Ten Little Dinosaurs, etc. We have several of them!
Goodnight, Little Monster (Helen Kettleman). This is a fun rhyming bedtime book about a little monster getting ready for bed.
Five Little Pumpkins (Ben Mantle). Here is another fun rhyming book about Halloween for very small children.
Pumpkin Soup (Helen Cooper). This rhythmic book is about friends making pumpkin soup.
Ten Timid Ghosts (Jennifer O’Connell). This is a cute little rhyming counting (countdown book) for young children.
