17 Boo-Tastic Halloween Books for Toddlers to Enjoy

This is the season for spookiness! Fall is my favorite season of the year, and as an October child, Halloween holds a special place in my heart. Being the mother of a 17-month-old also means I’m constantly on the prowl for Halloween books to pique my toddler’s interest. I hope to spark a similar thrill of Halloween in my daughter, and what better way to do that than with some delightfully, spooky books. Here is a list of 17 boo-tastic Halloween books for toddlers to enjoy.

1. SKELETITOS: MAKE EVERY MOMENT COUNT BY SUSIE JARAMILLO

I am simply mesmerized by the illustrations of this book. This Day of the Dead–themed tale will help show awareness for the Mexican holiday while also presenting a comedic twist for kids to enjoy. Skeletitos is also a book that inspires movement for toddlers; encourage your little one to dance to the rhythm! There’s also a free sing-along app included with the book as well as downloadable activities you can find online. Read More.

2. NEVER TOUCH A SPIDER! BY MAKE BELIEVE IDEAS, STUART LYNCH

While not strictly a Halloween book, this book checks all the boxes for the season. This is my daughter’s current favorite. She constantly drops this colorful board book in my lap to read for her. She loves touching the different textures on each page. This book shows creepy crawlies in adorable costumes, with a fun rhyme and rhythm that also teaches children to use caution when approaching bugs. Read More.

3. SPOOKY POOKIE (LITTLE POOKIE) BY SANDRA BOYNTON

I have a few of Sandra’s books in our board book collection, including Horns to Toes and In Between, and each of them are a delight. For Little Pookie fans, this is a great addition. Pookie can’t decide what costume to wear for Halloween (I mean, we can all relate). It’s an adorable book and perfect to read along with little ones excited about showing off their costume to friends and family alike. Read More.
