Reading aloud to kids is a great way to help them developmentally. There are many benefits that come from reading aloud, including helping kids understand the meaning of words by using context clues, improving their vocabulary, and increasing comprehension skills. All of these reasons (and more!) are why we always recommend reading books to start any new unit.
Below are some of the top-rated Halloween books for kids. Add them to your home collection or borrow them from your local library.
Room On The Broom: This has to be one of our most favorite Halloween books of all time! The story follows a witch and her cat as they happen upon some animals who help the witch. There’s danger, mystery, and friendship in this adorable children’s story.
5 Minute Spooky Stories: We love Disney’s 5 minute storybooks and this one is perfect for Halloween! See how all your favorite Disney characters celebrate this spooky holiday.
Ten Timid Ghosts: This is a fun countdown book about a witch who moves into a haunted house where 10 ghosts already live. The witch scares the ghosts out one by one until they devise a scheme to get her out of their house. This Halloween children’s book is good for kids who love rhyming stories!
Crafting helps kids in so many ways! It can help with their creativity and imagination, it encourages kids to use their hands, which improves gross motor skills, and it can help boost self-esteem! All while having fun too!
