Favorite Toddler Halloween Books

With Halloween coming up, we have decided to intersperse our favorite Halloween story books into the mix of our bedtime stories. We have accumulated several of them over the years and I’m sure we will continue to add to the list.  As of today, the following 6 books are our favorites.  They include entertaining stories, interactivity, and of course Halloween fun.


Halloween Books


  1. Happy Halloween, Daniel Tiger!: A Lift-the-Flap Book

    Tyler loves Daniel Tiger and we love the positive messages presented in the show, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.  Daniel Tiger actually was a big help in getting Tyler ready for his baby sister.  We can talk about that another time. In this book, Daniel and his friends are getting ready for Halloween.  The book takes you through each character’s costume and you use clues to guess what they are going to be.  The flaps make this a fun book to read with toddlers.

  2. Goodnight Goon: a Petrifying Parody

    If you like Goodnight Moon, then you will thoroughly enjoy this Halloween parody.  In similar style to the original, this book takes you through the things in the little monster’s room at bedtime.  The difference is these items include goo, a witch, a werewolf, a black hat, and more.  The pictures are cute, not scary, so it’s enjoyable for the kids.  Halloween Books

  3. Happy Halloween! (Sesame Street Scribbles Elmo)

    This story is actually one of my favorites.  Probably because I am a BIG Edgar Allen Poe fan.  I just love the rhythm of his poetry.  This book is written with the same rhythm as Poe’s The Raven. This makes it as fun for me to read as it is for Tyler to hear.  The story describes the Count waiting as guests arrive for his Halloween party.  There is definitely some knocking at Count’s castle door.  The story features your favorite Sesame Street characters dressed in their Halloween best. In the end, you are invited to the party too!Halloween Books

  4. Peanuts: It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

    This book is of the classic Charlie Brown story.  We all know this story, or at least we should.  If you don’t know it, do yourself a favor and watch the movie.  Let your kids see it too.  It’s just one of those things that everyone should do.  Anyway, the best part of this book is that it comes with reusable stickers.  I don’t know about you, but my toddler loves stickers.  This book has places to put stickers on every page in order to fully illustrate the story.  This has been a hit with Tyler night after night.  Halloween Books

  5. Curious George Haunted Halloween

    This book is an abridged version of the cartoon “Curious George’s Boo Fest”. Its a cute story where George gets spooked after hearing the story of No Noggin about a monster that steals hats.  The best part is that it is an unscary scary story. As in your child will feel like he/she is enjoying the scary story experience without actually being scared.  This is really an early reader book, but T liked it a lot.  It is a great length book for toddler bedtime, too. Halloween Books


    This was Tyler’s first Halloween book and we are keeping it in the mix mainly for Hailey’s benefit.  However, Tyler does request it himself every once in a while.  Like most baby’s first books, this book contains photos of various Halloween related things with the name of the item below the picture.  I believe that T like that some of the pictures are of kids dressed up in costume.  For example, the monster picture is a baby boy dressed up as a monster.  It’s a cute book for little ones. Halloween Books

Great list!

Good Night Goon looks so cute! And I just realized that I we don’t have the Great Pumpkin book! We watch it every year, but I never thought about the book! Need to remedy that STAT!


These sound cute! I’m gonna read some of them to Caleb!


The Great Pumpkin is such a classic! Love these picks for my nieces and nephews!


We love Daniel Tiger too, I’m definitely going to look for that one! And you can never go wrong with Elmo :o)


I love buying books for my kids that are specific to holidays. They are more interested in them because they are packed up for the rest of the year and it gives them something to look forward to. I’ll have to check out some of these books and add them to our collection. My kids love The Witches’ Supermarket (Susan Meddaugh) and Eek! Halloween! (Sandra Boynton).
