Seven Spooky Books: The Best Halloween Books for Toddlers

Fall is my favorite season and once October rolls around we are all about Halloween in our house. Aiden is obsessed with ghosts and monsters so this is the perfect time to stock up on some of the best Halloween books for toddlers. Today, I am sharing some of Aiden’s favorites!

Seven of the Best Halloween Books for Toddlers

I Love You, Little Pumpkin

This is a cute lift-the-flap book. Aiden loves guessing what Halloween characters are hiding behind the flaps. We got this one last year when Aiden was one so it’s really good for younger toddlers. These days, Aiden still likes reading it to himself.

There’s a Monster in Your Book

I randomly found this book at a CVS and thought it was adorable. It’s an interactive book about a little blue monster who lives in the book. Aiden loves following the instructions to try to get him out of the book and then back in the book (because you don’t want a monster running around your room!) The monster is friendly looking and cute so it’s not scary.

Little Blue Truck’s Halloween

Have you read the Little Blue Truck books? We were introduced recently to these and I just love them. The stories are so sweet. When I saw there was a Little Blue Truck’s Halloween I snagged it immediately. It’s a lift the flap book and Aiden loves trying to figure out the animals that Blue is picking up in their costumes.

It’s Pumpkin Day, Mouse

We are big fans of the If you Give a Mouse a Cookie mouse. Last year we were given this book where he paints different faces on pumpkins. It is still one of Aiden’s favorites. He likes visiting pumpkin patches and telling us about the different faces!

Halloween Lift-the-Flap Shadow Book

My mom picked this one up and Aiden loves it. Again, it’s a lift the flap book so there are Halloween spooks hiding under the flaps. This one is more appropriate for an older toddler. It features things like a black cat, skull and bones, a wizard, wolves, and ghosts — all of Aiden’s favorite Halloween things.

Sesame Street Happy Halloween

Aiden picked this one out at Barnes and Noble the other day. He loves Sesame Street and he really loved seeing all his favorite characters dressed up (especially the ghost). The story rhymes and is really sweet, and the illustrations are fun and colorful.

Dia de Los Muertos

This book is not technically a Halloween book, but it is seasonally appropriate. Aiden loves the movies Coco, and we are really enjoying learning more about Day of the Dead. I like how the book introduces Day of the Dead terms in a way that is easy for Aiden to understand and authentic. The colorful pictures are vibrant and beautiful too.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic toddler, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
