Kids’ Books for Halloween

October 23, 2011

Courtney loved Halloween. She used to work on costumes for her kiddos for weeks. She had the house decorated and pumpkins carved earlier than everyone on the block. At work she would decorate the whole office. At Klamath Falls Early Childhood Intervention, where she worked, she decorated the whole office, even putting a costume on the entry way welcome figure, Big Bird.

In the spirit of Halloween, we’re offering our own little list of fun stories for this spooky holiday…of course there are so many, we encourage any you and your little one love to read, here are a few we like:

– “Corduroy’s Best Halloween Ever” – Don Freeman & Lisa McCue – Corduroy is a constant figure in our house, we love him and his curiosity. In fact, I’m listening to my sweet husband read the original to our guy on the monitor right now. Freeman’s son honored us with a guest post, what a great story of a man and his relationship with his father. We’re so thankful for his support of Court’s Kids.

– “Clifford’s Halloween” – Norman Bridwell – Who doesn’t love this big red dog?

– “The Halloween Hoax” – Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew #9 – Carolyn Keene & Macky Pamintuan – The girls visit the studio of their favorite TV show…is the studio haunted? We add this in honor of our sister-in-law who wrote her thesis on female literary heroes…hooray for adventurous girls! Lindsay wrote a guest post for us too, check it out.

– “The Berenstain Bears Trick or Treat” – Jan & Stan Berenstain – What Court’s Kids book list would be complete with the “Bears”? They were Courtney’s favorite. In this story Brother and Sister go out trick-or-treating by themselves for the first time….I remember the first time I did this with ended in Courtney’s and Lee’s bags getting swiped by some big kids, me bringing Court & Lee home crying, and my Dad marching them back out to replace their candy…not sure I’ll ever forgive myself for that one.

– “You Can’t Scare Me” Goosebumps #17 – R.L. Stine – One of our first guest bloggers and a huge favorite among our readers…Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without the Goosebumps. We chose this particular story on recommendation from a young reader who graced us with this awesome post.

Have a great week friends, watch spooky movies and read spooky stories!
