Shining Star Read Alouds – The Halloween Edition

Read aloud books, Halloween, halloween books, halloween picture books, halloween books for kids

We LOVE Halloween at our house, and nothing sets the stage for Halloween like a good story.  Here are some of my absolute favorite Halloween books for reading aloud with children.  I haven’t put ages along with the books because spookiness is subjective.  I have put the books in order of spookiness level.  The first books on the list have absolutely NO scary factor, and would be appropriate for the youngest readers and listeners.  The last two books on the list are  full on ghost stories that are fantastic, but will really scare young children and any sensitive child.

I hope that you enjoy these as much as we do!
