Our Favorite Halloween Books

UPDATED – This giveaway is over. Congrats to Crystal Mckinley! Happy Halloween! I’ve always loved collecting Halloween books for my girls and even though they are older (13 and 10), it’s still fun to get our collection out each year. I thought I’d share some of our all-time faves AND I’ve got a giveaway for you at the end of this post.

Classic Halloween Books for Kids

Georgie’s Halloween – My mother found this paperback gem years ago at a Nashville thrift shop. It’s a sweet tale about a sweet little ghost and the illustrations are absolutely precious. Published in 1958, it’s a classic.

Rotten Ralph’s Halloween Howl – Another find from my mom, this book features a mischevious monster named Ralph. There are tons of fun details in the illustrations.

Dracula’s Tomb – A fun popup book, this is a newer release that is full of details about Dracula, but with a humorous twist kids will love (such as Dracula’s school report cards.)

Now for a fun giveaway. Want to win two new Zombie Chasers books (Zombies of the Caribbean and the hardback World Zombination, both released October 6 from author John Kloepfer), great for readers 8 to 12 and perfect for Halloween or any time of year?

    the “Scary Stories to tell in the Dark” books from when I was a kid. The stories are great, but the illustrations made them AMAZING!
