Halloween Countdown Book Tradition

With Halloween fast approaching, I thought I'd let you know of a new tradition we will be starting this year (beginning October 1st).

new Halloween tradition- read 1 new Halloween book every night leading up to Halloween

The plan is to read one Halloween book before bed, every night leading up to Halloween. 

David is only 1, so a lot of these books may go over his cute little head but that doesn't mean he isn't getting anything out of this new tradition. Story time has so many benefits to children of ALL ages.

Plus, I love any excuse for family time that doesn't involve sitting in front of the TV watching Netflix!

A few of these books are favorites of mine (like The Monster at the End of This Book) and a lot are new ones I found when googling "the best Halloween books for kids." I only picked books with good ratings, so I am hoping all of these are winners, but if not, this list will be updated for next year =)

Definitely let me know of your favorites in the comments below, so that I can check those out as well!

(I'm sharing this post a little early, in hopes that if you decide to do this tradition too you will have plenty of time to either order your books online & have them shipped or rent them from your local library before they run out!)
