Best Halloween Books for Pre-K & Kindergarten


This year I won't be reading cute and creepy Halloween stories to my class. This year I'm not teaching so I don't have a class, but one of the highlights of the beginning of the school year is Halloween season. I have taught Pre-K and kindergarten for the past 10+ years. Let me tell you nothing is quite as exciting as Halloween for kids between the ages of 4-7 years old. Since I can't justify buying a bunch of new pictures books this year I wanna push some recommendations your way. All of these books are available RIGHT NOW on the Scholastic Book Club website available here. Scholastic was my go-to place to buy cheap books for my classroom that my students adored. They have the best selection at the best prices.
