Books to Celebrate Halloween


I did a previous blog encouraging themed browsing boxes at home.  I love playing librarian to my daughter and creating a collection of holiday books for her learn about, enjoy, and celebrate the season.  I recently put together a browsing box full of Halloween books.  Since Halloween has always been her favorite holiday, she loves reading spooky books full of witches, ghouls, and goblins.  Below is a list of Halloween books for you to create your own themed browsing box at home.  Happy reading and Happy Halloween - Boo!
