Just as Halloween night couldn’t get any worse, Oscar has the opportunity to save the other dogs from a ghastly monster. This is a great book to teach kids about bullying and forgiveness.

Little Nell is excited to carve her very first Jack -O- Lantern! She finds the perfect pumpkin, but her sisters say it is too little and bumpy. With the help of some forest friends, Nell carves the pumpkin anyway. We loved this book for teaching kids about Halloween traditions and to not judge things by their appearance.


Egg doesn’t want to go Trick-or-Treating because it’s too scary! Luckily Peep is able to help egg see that the costumes are just pretend, and that Halloween can be a lot of fun. This is a great book for younger kids who may be spooked on Halloween.

This book helps your child count to ten and down again as they meet imps, werewolves, zombies, goblins, and more. The creatures may sound scary, but the illustrations are not. This book is a little bit longer, so we’d recommend it for children who can sit satill for 5 minutes.

“Beware the swamp monster,” says Thistle. Although they are nervous, Duck and Goose go trick-or-treating and find out that the swamp monster isn’t as scary as they thought.

We love the Five Little Monkeys series! In this book, while the monkeys are out getting treats they decide to trick their babysitter by swapping costumes with other animals!
