Trade in frights for fun with these books geared toward kids who love to celebrate Halloween — but who don't like to be scared!
From flying brooms to whimsical witches, these silly, non-scary Halloween books are just right for celebrating this favorite fall holiday. Use them for Halloween read-alouds as you get your class excited for the spooky day, or put them in the hands of independent readers who want to enjoy the holiday with giggles instead of ghosts.
Ten Flying Brooms is a cute rhyming story about missing witches, broomsticks, and whimsical adventures. Meanwhile, Dav Pilkey — the author of the infamous Captain Underpants and Dog Man series — delivers a fun Halloween treat with The Hallo-Wiener. Trick-or-treaters will love the story about Oscar, a dachshund, who is doomed to wear a hot dog costume on Halloween.
