I’m a big advocate for family reading. It’s something we enjoy doing daily in our home. And come this time of year it gets even more fun. The Halloween books for kids that are available are some of my favorites. So many choices!
I keep the special holiday and seasonal themed books down in our storage room and bring them out when the corresponding season comes along. The kids get SO excited to revisit some of their old book friends. I also love to add a new book or two to our stash each year. Someday I’ll have a HUGE feature wall filled with books . . . but I digress. For this post, I’ll just be sharing halloween books for kids, including fall and interactive books.
I’m breaking down the books into three categories. 1. Fall books 2. Halloween books, and 3. Interactive books that include both fall and halloween. I realize some families aren’t into Halloween as much, but the fall selection of books available are equally as good! We have a nice mix of each in our home.

I usually break out all the seasonal books around back to school time each year. I’ll start the fall decor and then usually one of the kids asks when they get their “Pumpkin Books.” I’ll casually set them on their bookshelf and when they go to grab their nightly book for dad to read, there they all are. I can hear the happy squeals from any room in the house.

At the end of every season when we’re packing away the decor, I’ll ask the kids to bring down the books to place in storage for another year. Although they’re sad, they know the next season of books is coming soon!
