Love it or not (how could you not?!), spooky season is here. My obsession for Halloween runs deep, that’s no secret, but it really went to a whole other level when my kids were born.
You’d be hard-pressed to find anything more charming than young kids’ abilities to believe in magic and mystery. For me, that’s absolutely the best thing about celebrating holidays with kids. Though we dive deep into most holidays in our home, Halloween takes the cake by far. The benefit of this, I’ve found from my own personal experience, is that my 6-year-old and 4-year-old don’t find anything about Halloween scary – it’s all exciting and fun for them.
I definitely did not intend for them to be enchanted by things like skeletons, ghosts, dark nights, and mystery, but I’ll go ahead and count it as a win (there’s so few of those as a parent, right?). These are amongst our favorite children’s books for Halloween.
