Can you believe Halloween is almost upon us?  Can you believe how long the Christmas stuff has been out in stores already?  I know, I know, I digress a bit but I always thought they would at least wait until Halloween is past before moving onto Christmas.  Anyhow, back to Halloween.  Here are some of the books my four year old loves to read (and in fact we read several of them year round).

Spooky Hour by Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees

The illustrations are great, the story has a nice rhythm as you read it aloud and the story is cute.

We’re Off to Find the Witch’s House by Richard Krieb and R.W. Alley

From It’s Halloween night, and as the moon rises, four children set off to find the witch’s house. on their way they encounter a host of silly, spooky characters, from a skittle-skattling skeleton to a shirking, lurking Dracula. Can they make it all the way to the witch’s house? or will their fears get the best of them? this humorous take on a favorite holiday begs to be read aloud again and again.

The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams

Follow the little old lady on her way back home as she meets all sort of spooky things along the way.

Goodnight Goon by Michael Rex

A cute remake of the classic Goodnight Moon with a Halloween flair.

Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson

From The witch and her cat are happily flying through the sky on a broomstick when the wind picks up and blows away the witch’s hat, then her bow, and then her wand! Luckily, three helpful animals find the missing items, and all they want in return is a ride on the broom. But is there room on the broom for so many friends? And when disaster strikes, will they be able to save the witch from a hungry dragon?
