Gallery: Spooky Books To Get Young Kids Ready For Halloween

By  | 

Halloween is lots of fun, but it can also be a scary time for little kids. All that spookiness is fun, but it’s a lot to take in. And pre-school age children tend to scare pretty easy.

But it’s important to introduce them to some of the scary characters they’ll be encountering throughout October. Everywhere they look, they’ll find jack o’lanterns and skeletons, spiders and bats. The best way for me to teach my daughter about these supposedly scary friends is to read about them during our nightly story time. Once she sees just how fun these books can be, it’ll be a lot easier to run into witches and ghouls on the street in the weeks to come.

Here’s our Halloween reading list to get little ones ready for fright night.
