Room on the Broom
In this story, Witch looses her hat but gains a bunch of friends in the process of finding it. Will they all fit together on the broom? Will they be able to save her from the dragon? Your littles will be excited to find out.


Goodnight Goon
Goodnight Moon was one of my own kids' favorite stories. I've read it to them since they were babies. Reading both Goodnight Moon and Goodnight Goon together is a great way to do a comparison of texts. And it's super cute and funny!


Little Blue Truck's Halloween
Little Blue Truck is becoming a fast favorite among little learners and this Halloween edition is no exception. Follow Little Blue Truck as he makes his past trick-or-treaters and tries to figure out who each of them are.


The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
Well, maybe she's a LITTLE bit afraid. But what does she do with that fear? She doesn't sit inside and hide. She conquers it head on, well pumpkin on...


There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat
The Old Lady series a favorite in our class and the Halloween one tops the charts. Why is she swallowing a bat and a cat and candy? Read on to find out what this story creates in the end.


The Spooky Wheels on the Bus
In this holiday rendition of the classic song, the bus makes its way around town with some spooky characters riding along. This book is perfect for pre-k and kindergarten students.


How to Catch a Monster
If you're familiar with How to Catch an Elf or How to Catch a Leprechaun, then you'll love How to Catch a Monster. This fun story told in rhyme is an excellent story starter for a Halloween how-to writing.


Ten Timid Ghosts
This counting book is just spooky enough to get students excited for Halloween and tame enough to not scare the pants off your little learners. This story is just right for pre-k and kindergarten students learning to count.


Big Pumpkin
Teamwork makes the dream work in this not too scary story about a witch who wants to make a pumpkin pie for Halloween. Her friends come up with a plan to get the big pumpkin in her house so she can get cooking.


Skeletons are NOT Spooky
This charming tale is sure to take some of the spooky out of Halloween. Skeletons just want to have fun like everyone else. And who can be afraid of a skeleton in a tutu?
