Book Bites: Five Halloween books to share! #vlogmom

Say it Rah-shay By Oct 18, 2013 20 Comments


I linking up with Vlog Mom and the prompt this week is a review of something.

Around my neck of the woods, Halloween is met with mixed reaction; some do not celebrate due to various personal reasons but there are a few who are a buzz with excitement about Halloween parades, costumes and candy.

I feel like I have successfully addressed both camps by grabbing books which are not exclusively about Halloween but feature monsters of some sort.

Here are my five favorites:



Are your favorites mentioned? Or did I miss yours?

Share your favorite books in the comments.

Happy reading!

I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.


  1. I haven’t read or seen any of these books buy I know my Grandson would like all of them. He sings the 5 little pumpkins.

  2. Melanie S. says:

    I don’t think I have any favorites, but I love Halloween, so they all sound like fun!

  3. I actually don’t have a favorite Halloween book. But we sure do love Halloween! We have mixed opinions about it in our area too, but we still enjoy it.

  4. Np little ones here and I don’t think they had favorite Halloween books. But I love these 🙂

  5. Sarah Bailey says:

    Halloween is the same here some celebrate it some don’t – I have to admit I don’t know any Halloween books x

  6. Le-an Lacaba says:

    we don’t celebrate halloween in the Philippines, but for scaredy cats like me, it’s a good thing.

  7. Pam says:

    I love Halloween but have never had a favorite Halloween book. The ones you showed in the video seem really cute and I am sure ones that kids would enjoy.

  8. I don’t think I have any favorite Halloween books. We never celebrated halloween when I was a kid, my mom didn’t like the things halloween is based on. So I don’t think i’ve even read any Halloween books. But my son is two and although I don’t agree with the gross parts of halloween, I do think its fun as a child to dress up so I guess I better start reading some books! Thanks for your ideas!

  9. You did a great job on those … love that vlog! Some of my kids’ favorites are Can you Make a Scary Face by Jan Thomas and Leonardo the Terrible Monster by Mo Willems. We don’t get much into Halloween either but we do love books about monsters.

  10. These all look so cute. Even though we don’t do Halloween, we did one year and read a few books.

  11. My kids LOVED the Ed Emberley book and The Little Old Lady Who wasn’t Afraid of Anything. Great choices!

  12. Amberlee says:

    I used to love goosebumps as a kid. Not sure if that counts as a Halloween book, but I guess that’s all the more reason to keep an eye out for some good ones for my girls this year

  13. Tess says:

    I dot have a favorite, but we set out to find fun books during the halloween season!

  14. You know, I never think of holiday books! I’m a movie freak, so I watch holiday movies religiously, but books? That would be great to share with my son!

  15. amanda says:

    interesting set of choices. i do get holiday books for my kids, but not usually for me

  16. I haven’t heard of any of these books before. I might look into the 5 little pumpkins and the old lady who isn’t afraid of anything. We only have 1 halloween book which isn’t entirely a halloween book. It’s Duck and Goose finds a pumpkin. 🙂

  17. I don’t have any Halloween books and neither does my grand daughter. she is very little and scares easily so we will have to skip that.

  18. These are some great titles. I’ve always loved Where the Wild Things Are. Although I don’t think it is traditionally considered a Halloween book, per se, the fact that it contains monsters has always made it perfect for Halloween in my opinion.

  19. BabsProjects says:

    I have tons of books as my older one loves to read. However, we don’t have Halloween books. I might have to look up these books.

  20. Vaasu says:

    I love these books! As a non-Armenian speaking panret these books have not only been engaging and entertaining for my children, but educational for us as well. My kids get a kick out of listening to their mom speak Armenian words and look forward to reading as many books as we can in one night! Thanks for bridging the gap!

Your turn! Tell it to Rah-shay!
