Halloween Picture Books

It is time for an October Read Aloud Round Up!  I am going to share with you some of my favorite books to read during the Halloween season.  Please note that each picture is linked Amazon so you can easily add the book to your card.  You can either click on the picture or on the name of the book in the post to link to Amazon.  These links Amazon do contain affiliate links which means I make a small percent off of any of these books that you purchase. :)


I thought it would be perfect to display my Felt Letter Board Message Set to showcase the Halloween picture books for the month of October! How cute would it be to switch out the little letter board each month to display new seasonal books!?!



The Hallo-Weiner is my FAVORITE Halloween book!  This story is about Oscar who is upset about his Halloween costume because the other dogs are making fun of him, but he ends up saving the day!



If You're Spooky and You Know It is perfect book that you can sing along to!  Each page is a different verse of "If you're happy and you know it" but it is a spooky version!




Ten Little Monsters is a great book for Kindergarten when you are teaching counting to 10! It is also a creative way to incorporate subtraction because the book counts down from 10-0.

If you are a Corduroy fan then Corduroy's Best Halloween Ever, is definitely a book you should add to your collection!


Goodnight Goon is a twist on the ever popular Goodnight Moon
.  This is a fun book to read if your students are familiar with the original Goodnight Moon!

Don't Push the Button! A Halloween Treat is a cute book that is all about that little monster "not pushing the button."


The Spooky Wheels on the Bus is a Halloween spin on the popular The Wheels on the Bus song that every child should know!  (if not, sing it to them ASAP! lol)



Room on the Broom is a great story to read to practice sequencing.  The witch adds more friends to sit on her broom throughout the story.  It is fun to have the students try and sequence the friends she adds along the way after you read the story! 


Five Little Pumpkins is a simple book to practice counting and retelling a rhyme.  I normally start with that book in October!  I just found a sequel to it called Five Little Pumpkins Come Back, which is great to read at the end of October when you have exacted the first one! lol

How Many Seeds in a Pumpkin? is my favorite book to read when I am carving pumpkins with my class.  This book is all about counting seeds so it is perfect to read before any seed counting activity! 


It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is a Halloween classic!

Pete the Cat Trick or Pete is perfect to talk about what your students are going to wear as their Halloween costume!

The Spooky House is great for toddlers, preschool, or TK students! Each page has interactive flaps where the young readers can flip open a flap and see what is under it!


The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin is another wonderful Halloween book that I read every year.  It is about this little square pumpkin that is not "perfect" like the other pumpkins.  His unique square shape ends up saving the day!

Spooky, Spooky, Little Bat is also great for young readers! You stick your finger through the bat puppet as you read the story and you get to watch the child's face light up as the bat wiggles around as you read!
