It’s that time of year again! Yup it’s almost Halloween, one of our family’s favorite holidays. (And you know we love all holidays!) To get into the Halloween spirit, pun intended, we like to usher in the holiday by reading Halloween Books with the grandkids.
We have grands ranging in age from 2 months to 16, so clearly we don’t read the same Halloween Books to all of them. Although in years past the oldest one sometimes sits in during the pre-schoolers story time if only to tease his brother about the baby books.
Anyway for this post I’m going to tell you about 6 Halloween Books our pre-schoolers love. In fact they like them so much we’ll be reading them many more times between now and Halloween, and perhaps even after.

My 4 year old twin grandkids love Pete the Cat. They think he’s super cool!
Pete the Cat:Trick or Pete is the perfect Halloween book for them. It’s a lift the flap book that follows Pete as he goes trick or treating in his neighborhood. As he goes from house to house the flap opens to a fun spooky surprise.
It’s a fun book and will be loved now and the years to come!
My 5 year old grandson loves the Room on the Broom! It’s good a witch on a broom, 3 helpful animals, and a hungry dragon, what more can a child ask for?
Is there room on the broom for the 3 helpful critters, and can they save the witch from the hungry dragon? Read the book to find out!
The 4 & 5 year old boys love this book. Of course they’re currently in their cars and trucks phase and this book is perfect.
The popular Blue Truck is picking up his animal buddies to go to a costume party. Lift the flaps on this board book to find out who’s wearing each costume.
Will the Little Blue Truck wear a costume too? Lift the flap to find out!
My 4 year old granddaughter loves this classic Halloween Book, but mostly I think she loves the stickers. She loves stickers!
We’ve read this book with all the grands and will be reading it I’m sure next year to the now 2 month old grandson.
It’s a fun book that teaches kids right and wrong. The bear kids are excited to go trick or treating with their friends but when someone decides they should play tricks this go quickly awry!
Here’s another beloved character! Follow along as the cute bear plans his Halloween Party. There’ll be pumpkin carving, apple bobbing, and of course trick or treating. But wait! What will he wear? Help Corduroy decide on his costume!
What pre-schooler doesn’t love monster? Specially those that eat yucky gross food?
Come eat with Max, a monster with a monstrous appetite!
