Halloween Books for Little Ones

It’s no mystery that I love children’s books, especially board books for the youngest readers.  With a few days left before Halloween, you still have time to go to your favorite bookstore and pickup a Halloween book or two for the little ones in your life.  Here are some of the books I am reading this Halloween with my granddaughter.

Duck and Goose Find a PumpkinDuck & Goose Find a Pumpkin

By Tad Hills (Author and Illustrator)

Duck and Goose look everywhere for a pumpkin. They looked in a log, in a leaf pile, in the apple tree, under water, and on top of a stump, but they couldn’t find their pumpkin anywhere. Thistle had his own pumpkin. Where did Thistle get his? In the pumpkin patch!

This beautifully illustrated storybook by Tad Hills will delight the youngest reader. It is available as a board book, just right for their little hands.


Boo! Guess Who, Elmo!Boo! Guess Who, Elmo

Story by Matt Mitter

Illustrations by Ernie Kwiat

This is a large flap book where the characters ask who is hiding.  The question asked on each flap is “Boo! Guess who, Elmo!”  When a child opens a flap a different Sesame Street character appears in costume.  Additional there is a question for the reader to answer on each page. “What color is the scarecrow’s shirt?” is just one example.

Colorfully illustrated, this board book will appeal to all Elmo and Sesame Street fans.


Mickey’s Halloween - A Lift-the-Flap BookMickey’s Halloween:  A Lift-the-Flap Book

Story by Matt Mitter

Illustrations by Later, Inc.

This book is so much fun for Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fans. Each page has a different Halloween scene with flap to lift, surprises to find, and all of the favorite clubhouse characters. The story is told in four line rhymes for each scene, and there are different activities for the children to do. On the farm scene the child is instructed to find specific items, and on the haunted house (a friendly haunted house, of course) the child is told to find different shapes.  With over fifty to lift, your child will be entertained for hours.

This fun book by Fisher Price has over 40 flaps for you little reader to lift. All of their favorite little people are here in their Halloween costumes.  This book will absolutely delight every young toddler.

    1. I understand completely. I hated when my children outgrew them, but then along came my grandsons. Now I have a little granddaughter who is enjoying them. Be patient, you’ll be reading them again.

  1. It’s a delight finding picture books on your blog, Michelle, though Halloween is not such a big thing over here. I especially like the look of “Duck and Goose”. I’m not so much into the merchandising, but there is sometimes good quality to be found there too. The witches’ hats and pumpkins reminded me of the Meg and Mog stories.
    Thanks for linking back to the two previous posts as well. It’s good to have a reminder, and in particular to find posts that I had previously missed.

  2. Don’t have any young ones any longer, sigh, sigh, but love these ideas. And why is it that I’m now suddenly longing to watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charles Brown,” hee, hee. Cheers and have a great Halloween.

  3. Do you know what Michelle, I have only just started getting small people back into my life again, you know how you go through stages and for ages it’s been all teenagers and young adults. But I finally have some sons of nephews around and some of my friends are becoming grandparents soon and I can’t wait to get back into choosing children’s books again. I love the Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin one 🙂 Thanks for sharing and I hope your granddaughter enjoys these.

    1. Georgia, you have so much fun ahead of you. My other grandchildren are Tyler (16) and Taylor (12 1/2) and grandson Ian (13). It is such a delight to have a little one in the family again. Thanks so much for stopping by and reading.
