Don’t limit your Halloween themed reading to Picture Books. (But do read the books on our list of Halloween Books about Self-Esteem?) Here is a short list of Halloween-themed chapter books for kids at a variety of different reading levels that you and your kids can read together this month.
Jenny’s Moonlight Adventure. Jenny and her urban feline friends gather together on Halloween to hear a performance from nose-flutist Madame Butterfly. But, oh no! The nose flute has gone missing. Ages 6 and up.
Other series chapter books which have Halloween editions include: Katie Kazoo, Switcheroo, Ready, Freddy!, Magic Tree House, Stink, Nate the Great (I liked this one a lot for beginning readers), Horrible Harry, My Weird School, The Boxcar Children, Rainbow Magic (!) and of course the entire Goosebumps series.
So, will you and your kids be reading Halloween chapter books or will you stick to picture books this year?
