Halloween Books for Children


Sure, we know what it takes to be ready for a kid’s Halloween: scary/fun costumes, make-up, and sturdy bags for treats; flashlights and warm clothes and a hand to hold. But what do the ghouls, goblins, and monsters have to do before all those trick-or-treaters come knocking at the door on All Hallows Eve? Do we ever think about what their Halloween is like?


Author Natasha Wing adds this Halloween book for children to her collection of stories based on Clement C. Moore’s original T’was the Night Before Christmas poem. Other titles in her series include The Night Before Easter and The Night Before Thanksgiving. Children will like the familiar format as each new season rolls around.

Complete with friendly Halloween characters illustrated by Cynthia Fisher, The Night Before Halloween lets children see and think about the holiday from the other side—the dark side! See what preparations it takes to be a dedicated murmuring mummy, vicious vampire, or warty witch. Good for young readers ages 4 to 8, the rhyming tempo make this Halloween book for children perfect for young goblins drifting off to sleep. Then you’ll be able to complete the story: Happy Halloween to all, and to all a good night!


"Twas the night before Halloween, and all through the house,
All the creatures were stirring, except for the mouse
The monsters had gathered to plan and prepare,
For the trick-or-treaters who soon would be there...."

Big Pumpkin is a Pumpkin Goblin-approved Halloween book for children.
