Learn to Read Halloween Books

Step into Reading or Learn to Reads are great for those learning to read and want to read more on their own. There are many steps depending on where your child is. This one called Pumpkin Day is a level 1, About Pumpkin Patch and Autumn Gourds. Click Clack Boo is all about Besty Halloween Party. Little Witch Learns to Read is a level 2, about showing people the love of reading.

Picture Books for Halloween

Fall picture books are some of my favorite as they always involve some classics and some newer characters. This not new but still a favorite among kids is Pete the Cat Falling for Autumn, talks about corn mazes, hay rides, and apple picking and all the joys of fall. Sweet and Spooky Halloween is another favorite as the princess dress up and explore Halloween. Not technically Halloween but it’s a monster book so I’m including because its just so darn cute and funny, The Monster at the End of This Book.

A classic book based off the Peanuts gang is It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. And, would this even be my place to share with you if I didn’t share a train book?! Thomas and the Runaway Pumpkins is based on the fall pumpkin crop missing from Island of Sodor. Snowman at Halloween is about an early snowfall.

Have you ever read about the Crayons this book is about the crayons Trick or Treat and the magic to say when its not Boo. Another classic and who can say no to the big red dog, this book is about Clifford’s Halloween. Another classic with the big red dog is about some bears like Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat. This was one of my favorite as a kid with Clifford.

Chapter Books about Halloween

Chapter books for Halloween are a little harder to find but one is Amelia Bedelia Scared Silly. Rosco the Rascal Visits the Pumpkin Patch, what can go wrong with a dog at the pumpkin patch? Happy and Heinous Halloween of Classroom 13 the unlucky classroom and Halloween party full of humor and action. It’s Halloween and I’m Turning Green! funny stories with games and puzzles. Magic Tree House Merlin edition has Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve, featuring the famous Jack and Annie.

Honorable Mention

These books are still good books but not a top favorite but still good. You might like them even better. The first is How to Catch a Witch and How to Catch a Monster. The Night Before Halloween is a fun filled book about the night before Halloween. Another cute story about witches with Room the Broom and how the animals came to help out. Haunted Mansion great for all ages based on the ride attraction.
