My little girl loves reading. She would rather read than do anything else. I try to buy her books with themes which make it easier for me to rotate her books, so she doesn’t get bored. These are a few of our favorite Halloween books for toddlers, and since I also have older boys I’m also going to share a few of our favorite Halloween books for school aged kids.
All of the Halloween books for toddlers can be found on Amazon. If you have Amazon Prime, you can get them with free two-day shipping. If you don’t have Prime, you can get a free 30-day trial here.

Skeleton is dancing his way to a Halloween party—but as he grooves across town, he keeps stumbling, tumbling, and falling apart! Can Skeleton stay in one piece long enough to make it to the party?
It’s written by Charlotte Gunnufson. It’s a very cute book and almost reads like a song. All three of the kids like this book, and secretly so do I.
The witch and her cat are happily flying through the sky on a broomstick when the wind picks up and blows away the witch’s hat, then her bow, and then her wand! Luckily, three helpful animals find the missing items, and all they want in return is a ride on the broom. But is there room on the broom for so many friends? And when disaster strikes, will they be able to save the witch from a hungry dragon?
This book is written by Julia Donaldson. I bought this book after we checked it out from the library a gazillion times. Little Miss really likes it.
This book is a Halloween book for toddlers. It’s a small cardboard book with a puppet, so the younger kids really like it.
It’s Halloween and Brother and Sister can’t wait to go trick-or-treating with all of their friends, but when someone in the group encourages the kids to play a trick, things don’t go as planned.

It’s Halloween night and all are preparing, for a wickedly wonderful evening of scaring. With zombies and banshees and mummies galore. Marjorie Dennis Murray is the author of this cute twist on the night before Christmas.
Once upon a time, there was a little old lady who was not afraid of anything! But one autumn night, while walking in the woods, the little old lady heard. . . Clomp, clomp, shake, shake, clap, clap.

Known across the land for his infamous appetite, Finnigin is never seen without his eating stool, his eating spoon, and his gigantic eating mouth.
When Finnigin finds himself in a new town on Halloween, he hopes to join a great feast with the creatures who live there. But not a body or soul will share any of their food with the ever-famished Finnigin. So what’s a hungry skeleton to do? Armed only with his wits and a special ingredient, will Finnigin be able to stir up a cauldron’s worth of Halloween magic?
Pinkalicious can’t believe it: The mayor has canceled Halloween because a storm has knocked out the town’s power. No Halloween means no Halloween candy. No Halloween jack-o’-lanterns. No Halloween trick-or-treating. No Halloween holiday parties. And worst of all, no Halloween costumes. Pinkalicious has the perfect Pinkagirl costume and she absolutely has to wear it.
Superhero Pinkagirl would find a way to save Halloween, and Pinkalicious decides she will too. All she needs to do is figure out a way to get the town’s lights back on. The lights don’t come on—here’s what happens: Pinkalicious persuades the Mayor to have a Halloween party in the park in front of City Hall—from all over town, folks come with their flashlights, their pink pumpkins, and goodies to share.
Little Critter and Little Sister dress in fun costumes, bob for apples, play pin the broom on the witch, and much more. There are plenty of surprises to be had, even if some of them are just a little spooky!
All these books are great Halloween books for toddlers and great Halloween books for school aged kids. I like to buy about 5 books per holiday and switch them out, but we also go to our local library and borrow them for free.
