Fun books of the month

I want to share some Halloween themed books we’ve been reading this month. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do.

The Hallo-weiner, By Dav Pilkey
Oscar gets teased for being different from the other dogs and what’s worse was the costume his mom got him. In the end he comes out a hero and is never made fun again.

Ant and Honey Bee: a pair of friends at Halloween, By Megan McDonald
This is a short chapter book that I read to H. It's a story about two friends and how they come up with a perfect pair of Halloween costumes.

Five Little Pumpkins, By Dan Yaccarino
A fun book for the young ones, N practices counting as we read this one.

Skeleton Meets the Mummy, By Steve Metzger
We found this one on display at Barnes and Noble.
Something is following Sammy, what could be making that noise? Scritch- Scratch.
We like the ending to this book.

Big Pumpkin, By Erica Silverman
We bought this last year. H loves to read this over and over all year long.
The witch wants to make pumpkin pie but has a hard time getting the pumpkin off the vine. With some help see how she finally is able to make her pie.

We are heading to a book sale at our local library today. We're always looking for new books to read.
What are some Halloween / Fall books that you recommend?
Also, remember to submit your child/children's pumpkin picking coloring page if you haven't done so already. There is only a few days left before the contest ends!

Have a great weekend!


  1. I haven't bought any fall themed books. Perhaps when J is older ;). I saw this book on another site that was beautiful - Thanks for Thanksgiving. The one in the 2nd photo

  2. I'll have to see if I can find that book. Good picks on that site, thanks Lisa :)
