Halloween Family Tradition Idea Using Kids Books

When I was growing up my grandparents (Nana and Boompa) would give me a book for each holiday. These book were always themed for the particular holiday and it’s fun to look back on the collection in my library years later. And share the books with my own kids!

This is a family tradition that I knew I wanted to continue with my own family. While I’m sharing with you the best Halloween books for kids, this family tradition doesn’t have to be specific to Halloween only, but can be done for Which is something that we do at our house.

Kids book for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day… all the holidays!

Halloween Family Tradition

 

Why is this a great holiday family tradition to start?

Giving a holiday book each year is a fun family tradition, unique gift idea, and a great way to grow your home library. Kids will have fond memories reading from the collection over the years and can take the books with them into adulthood to one day read with their own family.

 

 

Where can you find books to give?

This does not have to be an expensive family tradition! In addition to new books, keep a look out throughout the year for deals online or a thrift store. Used books can also be found at book fairs or when your local library is selling surplus. My grandparents found Georgie’s Halloween at the Valley Park Library sale. It even has the old library tags still on it!

What are the best Halloween books for kids? 

Baby to age 5:

BabyLit Dracula a counting primer by Jennifer Adams 

I love the BabyLit board books. Soooo many classics to choose from and you cannot go wrong with Dracula for Halloween.

Eek! Halloween by Sandra Boynton

From the author of popular ones like Pajama Time and Barnyard Dance! This book is colorful and can be found in a small and large board book.

Remember that older kids can have fun reading as a family with younger siblings!

 

 

Age 3-8 years:

Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler 

This one quickly became a Halloween classic. A witch and a broom? How can that not go down as an October favorite?

The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda D. Williams and Megan Lloyd 

My kids love this book and shouting out ‘Clomp Clomp’ when we read it as a family. It’s the perfect home library addition for fall reading.

 

Pete the Cat Five Little Pumpkins by James Dean

Combine 5 little pumpkins with Pete the Cat and you’ve got a book that’s a hit with the elementary kids!

 

 

Age 6-9 years:

The Spider and the Fly illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi

From the 1829 poem by Mary Howitt, this book is a spooky one and perfect for reading on Halloween night.

 

 

Ages 9-12 years:

Rowley Jefferson’s Awesome Friendly Spooky Stories

From the author of the Diary of a Wimpy and Diary of an Awesome Kid books. Older kids will enjoy this fun collection of stories.

 

And… can’t leave out the Halloween books for the older kids!

Also can be read by adults because you all know we like young adult fiction.

Ages 12 and up:

Fear Street Super Thriller books by R. L. Stine

Not your typical Goosebumps books! These spooky, mystery thrillers are perfect for the teens of the house. 

Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie

Here’s an example of an out of print book that can be found at a thrift store or used book sale. A classic Agatha Christie perfect for teens and adults to enjoy. 

Speaking of Agatha… she has so many mystery books that are perfect for Halloween reading. TheMousetrap play is one of my favorite. Not necessarily Halloween themed (since it’s snowed in during the holidays) but it’s a spooky mystery nonetheless. 

 

 

St. Louis Halloween Book

Saint Louis Boo! by Carolyn Mueller, Chris Sharp and Chris Grant

Fun illustrations for the entire family with a tour of favorite places in the Lou.
