My Favorite Halloween Books!

How do you get your children in the Halloween spirit? I just read a great idea on the Design Mom blog. Design Mom lights candles and reads Halloween books or tells spooky stories to her children each night in October. What fun is that!

I like to add a new holiday book each year to my shelf. This year, I am going to buy the Geronimo Stilton book, It’s Halloween, You ‘Fraidy Mouse! My seven-year-old son has gone crazy over the Geronimo Stilton series. The books are about a spunky mouse and his adventures. The books are very funny with colorful and unique artwork and page design. These are the first chapter books that my son runs home from school to read. He and his eleven-year-old sister find the stories funny and highly entertaining. Click here for more details.

Thanks to Design Mom, I have gotten out my Halloween books and put them in a basket in my living room to read one each night by candlelight to my kids. Tonight’s reading is an all-time favorite, The Berenstein Bears Trick or Treat! I know my kids are going to love this new tradition. Let us know if you have a favorite Halloween book. We’d love to hear from you!
