The Top 7 Best Halloween Books for Kids...

"Haunted House on Maple Street" by Sana Shahid. Not the typical haunted house tale. Here, the house is filled with ghosts who are planning a fun Halloween party for all the neighborhood kids. But things don't always go as planned! Join Charlie and his friends on yet another thrilling adventure in the small town of Willowville. After their encounter with a ghost, Charlie and his friends can't resist the urge to explore the haunted house on Maple Street. What they find inside is even more mysterious than they could have imagined.

"Attack of the Jack-O'-Lanterns" (Goosebumps) by R. L. Stine. PUMPKIN POWER! Nothing beats Halloween. It's Drew Brockman's favorite holiday. And this year will be awesome. Much better than last year. Or the year Lee and Tabby played that joke. A nasty practical joke on Drew and her best friend, Walker. Yes, this year Drew and Walker have a plan. A plan for revenge. It involves two scary pumpkin heads. But something's gone wrong. Way wrong. Because the pumpkin heads are a little too scary. A little too real. With strange hissing voices. And flames shooting out of their faces...

"Halloween" by Jerry Seinfeld. So the first time you hear the concept of Halloween when you're a kid, your brain can't even understand it. "What is this? What did you say? Someone's giving out candy? Who's giving out candy? EVERYONE WE KNOW is giving out candy? I gotta be a part of this!"

In his first picture book, comedian and bestselling author Jerry Seinfeld captures on the page his hilarious views on Halloween, from Superman costumes that look like pajamas to the agony of getting bad trick-or-treat candy. Seinfeld's tale resonates with vivid experiences of a night every kid loves.

"Past the graveyard,

hear the howl

of werewolf loggers

on the prowl."

"How to Build a Haunted House" by Frank Tupta. In this spooky, rhyming romp, creatures of all types work together to build a haunted house for a vampire family in need of a home. From mummies to Cyclops to the skeleton crew, they’re all working hard to get the job done. But they’d better hurry, because the house needs to be finished before the sun comes up. It’s a good thing their foreman, Frankenstein, is here to keep everyone in check. Will they get it done in time?

"Plinky Witch and the Grand Halloween Scheme" by Liz Cooper. Plinky Witch, a clever little witch wearing striped stockings, has a thought one day—Halloween would be so much more fun if it occurred every single night, instead of only once a year! The members of the Happy Broomsticks Club agree. They work hard to create a “forever” trick-or treating experience. Little do they know; The Grand Halloween Scheme will result in several surprising consequences.

The Author weaves a delightful tale of friendship, cooperation, and problem-solving centered around a favorite holiday. The whimsical details and charming illustrations add to the fun. Plinky Witch reminds us to use our imaginations, learn from our mistakes, and never give up trying new things. This story is appropriate for children of all ages.

"Stumpkin" by Lucy Ruth Cummins. From the critically acclaimed author and illustrator of A Hungry Lion comes a unique Halloween story about a stemless pumpkin who dreams of becoming a jack-o-lantern.

Stumpkin is the most handsome pumpkin on the block. He’s as orange as a traffic cone! Twice as round as a basketball! He has no bad side! He’s perfect choice for a Halloween jack-o-lantern.

There’s just one problem—Stumpkin has a stump, not a stem. And no one seems to want a stemless jack-o-lantern for their window.

As Halloween night approaches, more and more of his fellow pumpkins leave, but poor Stumpkin remains. Will anyone give Stumpkin his chance to shine?
