Five Books You Should Have For Halloween

Berenstain Bears Trick Or Treat HERE
 By Stan and Jan Berenstain
I love this story as it not only is masterfully illustrated by reminds kids of a great lesson on Halloween--appearances can be deceiving.  This is my favorite Halloween story.

Julius's Candy Corn HERE
By Kevin Henkes
Short. Sweet. Great. Get it (or the whole holidays set).

Angelina's Halloween HERE
Written by Katharine Hollabird and Illustrated by Helen Craig
This beautiful illustrated story is a little spooky I think, but my four year old doesn't seem to mind and it does have great pictures.

Miss Nelson Is Missing HERE
Written by Harry Allard and Illustrated by James Marshall
I'll admit this isn't technically a Halloween tale but with the "substitute" dressing up like a witch, I always thought of this as a spooky fall book.  It's fantastic--get it!

The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything HERE
Written by Linda Williams and Illustrated by Megan Lloyd
This book is quite spooky but the illustrations are great and it's a good one for Halloween.

Post Script:
If you're looking for good Halloween movies
here are a few favorite of ours:

Garfield's Halloween (and other holidays) HERE
Be careful! This is great fun but pretty scary!

It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown HERE
The best Halloween movie ever. Full stop.  Shame on you for making me have to tell you. 

Monsters Vs. Pumpkins HERE
Funny and just a tad scary (best if you've seen Monsters Vs. Aliens)
