Best Halloween Board Books for Toddlers

Sep 26, 2023

Halloween is a special time to create first memories with your toddler through reading. Board books that feature cute jack-o'-lanterns, fun costumes, and not-so-spooky ghosts and ghouls evoke the magic of the season while you’re cozy at home. The titles in this hand-picked list are wonderfully interactive — with touch-and-feel textures, lift flaps, and opportunities to peek into masks and mirrors — that are great for developing fine motor skills in early learners. 

For instance, Peppa Pig: Peppa's Giant Pumpkin by Samantha Lizzio highlights Peppa trying to grow the biggest pumpkin to win a class contest. However, what will happen if the pumpkin becomes too big to get to school?

Meanwhile, Little Boo's Halloween Party is perfect to read while cuddling up with your little pumpkin this spooky season. They will love celebrating alonside whimsical characters and exploring the magical world of Little Boo.
